Cartwright writes opinion piece for BDN about TikTok

Joy Cartwright, who will graduate from University of Maine this spring with a double major in marketing and sociology, wrote an opinion piece for the Bangor Daily News about whether TikTok should be banned in the United States. Cartwright researchers the risks and sociological implications of social media in the U.S. “In an age of social media, we must continue to educate the public about the harmful practices used by these corporations. The U.S. should define the next era of digital legislation and protection while preserving the integrity of American values,” Cartwright wrote. The column is a guest contribution to the Maine chapter of the national Scholars Strategy Network, which brings together scholars across the country to address public challenges and their policy implications.
