The surprising story of how TikTok reunited man with family after more than a year
Thanks to a video shared on TikTok, the man who had gone missing, was traced in and reunited with his family.
TikTok came under massive criticism for its problematic and inappropriate videos, but the video-sharing social networking app proved to be a blessing for one family. In a shocking incident, TikTok helped reunite a man with his brother and other family members in Sukkur.
According to reports, the brother of the missing man recognized him after a video of his went viral on the video-sharing mobile application. He then approached the local police, who helped him locate his lost brother, reuniting the missing person with his family.
SSP Sukkur told media outlets that a man came to them, claiming that the person who posed as a beggar in the viral video was his brother and asked for their assistance in locating him. He said that the missing man was identified as Arz Muhammad and that he was missing for more than a year. Muhammad’s family had also earlier registered a complaint with the police over his disappearance.
TikTok is one of the most popular social media apps in the country. Recently, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had issued a final warning to the app over obscene and immoral content. The regulatory body said that complaints were received from different segments of society against immoral, obscene, and vulgar content on social media applications, particularly TikTok and Bigo.
