TikTok promises to do more to stop obnoxious content

TikTok, the owner of the popular short video sharing app, promised Wednesday that after the "Nazi problem and the white supremacy problem" on its platform, it will take more measures to address the boring content and behavior of its platform.

Tik Tok said on his blog that it will tighten the screws on the encrypted language and codes that users use to spread hate speech. Tik Tok is already trying to eradicate hate speech and ideologies of hate like neo-Nazism and white supremacy, but is now planning to remove content related to other ideologies such as white nationalism and genocide theory. white.

The company also said it would remove data derived from these ideologies and content related to "identity" and the male supremacy movement.

Like Facebook and Twitter, TikTok has banned content that denies the Holocaust and other violent tragedies. But she said: More steps will be taken to eliminate disinformation and harmful stereotypes about Jews, Muslims and other societies. This includes misleading information about known Jews and the families with whom anti-Semitism has spread.

Last July, the BBC discovered that the TikTok algorithm was promoting anti-Semitic cartoons in death camps. The company removed 6.5 million videos of anti-Semitic songs.

TikTok said: It will also remove content promoting conversion therapy or the idea that no one is gay.

Danny Stone, Executive Director of the Anti-Semitic Policy Fund, said in a statement, "TikTok has a large and growing audience and bears primary responsibility for ensuring that users of the platform do not submit objectionable material." He added, "We are therefore pleased that the company is trying to deepen its understanding and expand its policies against anti-Semitism and other forms of racism, and we welcome the changes announced today."

The company is said to have more than 10,000 secure and confident employees around the world, many of whom review and manage content uploaded to the platform, and they use algorithms to report and remove inappropriate content.
