TikTok, a popular video-sharing platform, published its Community Guidelines Enforcement Report on Monday, revealing the number and nature of violative material and accounts removed from the platform in the third quarter of 2021.
According to the research, the platform removed more than 6 million videos from Pakistan, placing it fourth in the world for the biggest number of movies removed in this time period.73.9 percent of content supporting harassment and bullying was intentionally taken down in an attempt to strengthen the platform’s public accountability policy. Between July 1st and September 30th, 2021, the platform had eliminated 91 million videos globally. Nearly 95% of those videos were removed before they were reported, 88 percent before they gained any views, and 93 percent before they were reported.
The video-sharing app is changing its rules to make it illegal to gain unauthorized access to the platform or any of its data. TikTok is working to create state-of-the-art cyber-incident tracking and investigative-response units in Washington DC, Dublin, and Singapore this year, in addition to educating the community on how to find and report suspicious activities.
The Chinese-owned social media site has updated its Community Guidelines to guarantee the safety and well-being of its members while also maintaining the platform’s integrity.
The number of automated removals has also risen in recent months as the firm continues to improve its system for detecting and removing specific types of infractions during video upload, thereby enhancing the app’s overall safety, efficacy, and consistency.
The criteria apply to everyone and all contents on the site in order to reach a safer standard of content that is suitable for the broad audience, which ranges from teenagers to great-great-grandparents.
