TikToks money game is getting serious, especially with the Creativity Program Beta and TikTok Shop. But ethics and content quality are real concerns. Ive seen creators stretch content to a minute (reducing overall quality because the content should just be shorter) and I see creators selling white-labeled none-sense/drop-shipping.
