TikTok is stepping up its content moderation on the platform and will now let you know why your video is being removed.
You just posted a new video on TikTok. You know it, this time it will go viral. But within minutes, your video disappears. It has been removed. And you don’t understand. Or do you?
Until recently, TikTok would not explain why it removed one of your videos from its platform. You would be informed that it violated the “community guidelines” but nothing more.
That’s changing today.
TikTok has upgraded its violation notification center to give you a clearer idea of why your video was removed. You will now be told which of the specific policy you breached with your content. While new on TikTok, this is very similar to what other platforms already do.
Of course, you will still be able to submit an appeal. And knowing exactly why your video was removed will certainly help you make a better case when appealing the decision. That being said, TikTok said it has been experimenting with the new violation notifications for several months and that appeals have actually decreased by 14%.
I guess you always knew what you did wrong. Right?
