TikTok has announced a series of training workshops for content creators in Pakistan. The initiative is part of TikTok’s ongoing commitment to the safety and well-being of its community.
The workshops are designed to enhance the understanding of TikTok’s community guidelines among content creators. These guidelines serve as a comprehensive framework that outlines the rules and standards governing the platform’s usage. They are also adaptable to emerging trends and potential hazards, enabling the platform to effectively mitigate risks associated with evolving online behaviors.
The most recent updates to these guidelines were made effective from April 21 this year, following consultations with over 100 organizations worldwide and members of the TikTok community.
As part of the campaign, TikTok is partnering with some of Pakistan’s most popular content creators who will create content and help drive awareness of the platform’s Community Guidelines. The campaign, under the hashtag #SaferTogether, will feature videos from these creators discussing the importance of understanding these guidelines and how they can help improve the quality of content published on the platform.
In addition to fostering a safe digital space, TikTok is committed to promoting responsible content creation practices. The platform encourages its users to express their creativity while respecting cultural sensitivities and promoting positive values.
TikTok’s efforts extend beyond education and awareness. In the first quarter of 2023, the platform removed 11,707,020 videos from Pakistani creators for violating community guidelines. Globally, TikTok removed 91,003,510 videos, accounting for approximately 0.6% of all videos uploaded to the platform.
The platform also took action against fraudulent activity, removing 51,298,135 fake accounts during the same period. TikTok uses a combination of innovative technology and human review to identify, assess, and take action against content that violates its community guidelines.
Through these initiatives, TikTok aims to empower its community with the right tools and resources to channel their creativity safely, promote joy, and ensure the well-being of its community.
