Karachi teenagers shoot dead elderly man for TikTok fame

Tiktok 2022

Police have apprehended two teenage students for allegedly shooting dead an elderly citizen in Karachi’s Malir for a TikTok video.

A man, identified as Qamar Raza, was killed near Ghazi Chowk in Jafar-e-Tayyar Society six days back.

The Malir SSP said that the police have arrested two students, both aged 14, in the murder case. The teenagers shot the man dead just to make a video for TikTok, he revealed.

CCTV footage of the bizarre incident shows four youngsters on two motorcycles. Suspect Fazil Ali fired at Qamar Raza, the police said.

The murder weapon and a motorcycle have been recovered from the detained teenagers. The weapon has been sent to a lab for a forensic examination, the SSP said.

He said the suspects during investigation provided information about their two on-the-run friends and raids are being conducted to arrest them as well.

TikTok Just Ended Google's 15 Year Reign as the World's Most Popular Web Domain

Tiktok beats Google

 For most of the last decade and a half, Google has been the most visited web domain in the world, and it's not even close. The last time another site posed a real challenge for the top spot was Yahoo, and that was a decade ago.

When you consider the number of people who use Google's services every day for everything from school assignments, collaborating on documents, finding directions, sharing photos, and well, searching for just about everything, it's not all that surprising. Google is the most popular search engine in the world, and it's where the vast majority of people start when they want to find something online.

This year, that has been changing. According to a report released on Monday by Cloudflare, one of the major internet content delivery networks, overtook Google as the most visited domain in the world in 2021. 

On the one hand, considering how relatively new TikTok is in our collective consciousness, that's surprising. On the other hand, when you remember TikTok is the fastest-growing social network ever, it shouldn't be. It was even the most-downloaded app in 2020 and now has more than 1 billion users.

TikTok's rise to the top clearly says something about how technology is changing, but more importantly, it says something about the change in the way we find and consume information about the world around us. For more than a decade, the way we use the internet has mainly been dominated by Google, Facebook, YouTube (which is owned by Google), and Amazon. If you happened to find yourself somewhere else online, there's a good chance you started at one of those sites.
