Why Is TikTok Still Showing Eating-Disorder Videos to Users? | Tech News Briefing Podcast | WSJ

From Wall Street Journal.

But months later, they are still cropping up in users’ feeds.

WSJ family & tech columnist Julie Jargon joins host Zoe Thomas to discuss how harmful content keeps getting onto the platform and where that leaves users who are struggling with mental-health issues.
