In recent news, the ever-popular video-sharing social media platform known as TikTok released its quarterly transparency report which indicated that Pakistan was the second largest country to violate the company’s community guidelines. As a result, over 6 million videos were removed that violated the respective guidelines. This isn’t a surprise as recently the Sindh High Court had ordered a nationwide ban on the platform due to the promotion of immoral content by TikTok users. According to TikTok’s report, from the period of January to March 2021 approximately 61.95 million videos were removed globally which is less than 1 percent of the overall videos on the platform. However, in accordance to the Pakistan region over 6.49 million videos were removed while the highest number of videos removed from the platform is 8.54 million which comes from the U.S due to the involvement of adult nudity in the videos. According to Jamin Tan, TikTok’s Head of Asia Pacific Region for product policy, trust, and safety, stated the following: “Of those videos, 79.6pc were removed before they were reported to us, 88.4pc were removed within 24 hours of being uploaded to TikTok, and 61.2pc had zero views. After receiving an appeal, TikTok reviews the video a second time and reinstates it if it had been mistakenly removed.” Despite the concerns and violation of guidelines, TikTok is working tirelessly with public health experts to help the community stay safe and properly inform the community on the latest COVID-19 updates.

The ever-popular video-sharing social media platform, TikTok, recently released its quarterly transparency report, which revealed that Pakistan was the second most frequent country to breach the company’s community norms, following the United States. As a result, nearly 6 million films that violated the relevant criteria were removed from the site.

Because of the propagation of immoral content by TikTok users, the Sindh High Court has issued a statewide ban on the platform, which comes as no surprise. According to TikTok’s study, around 61.95 million videos were removed from the platform worldwide between January and March 2021, accounting for less than 1 percent of all videos on the platform during that time period.

However, according to the Pakistan area, over 6.49 million videos have been removed, with the biggest number of videos removed from the platform coming from the United States, where 8.54 million videos have been banned owing to the presence of adult nudity in the videos.

79.6% of the films were removed before they were reported to us, and 88.4% of the movies were removed within 24 hours of being uploaded to TikTok. Additionally, 61.2 percent of the videos had no views, according to Jamin Tan, Head of Asia Pacific Region for product policy, trust, and safety. After receiving an appeal, TikTok evaluates the video a second time and, if it was wrongly removed, it will be reinstated.”

However, in spite of the concerns and violations of rules, TikTok is working relentlessly with public health professionals to ensure that the community is safe and that it is appropriately informed about the most recent COVID-19 updates.
