How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

TikTok App Hacked: The famous video-sharing app contains dangerous vulnerabilities that can allow remote attackers to hijack any user account just by knowing the mobile number of targeted victims. Then hackers can:
-delete any videos from victims’ TikTok profile.
-upload unauthorized videos to victims’ TikTok profile, (which can include illegal images, and then they can blackmail you with threats of sending your family/employeer a screenshot of your TikTok app displaying the illegal images).
-make private “hidden” videos public.
-reveal personal information saved on the account, such as private addresses and emails.
Users need to update as soon as possible to fix this.
