TikTok is launching two new comment features in a bid to promote kindness among users on its platform.
Most people have been going through a tough time during the last year, so we definitely could use some positivity and kindness in our lives. While social platforms can be used for so many great things, they are also a breeding ground for the opposite. That’s why TikTok is launching a set of features that help users control comments and keep them friendly.
The first is a new “Filter All Comments” feature that allows creators to decide which comments appear on their videos. When the filter is enabled, only comments that are approved in the new comment management tool will make it to the comment section.
“This feature builds on our existing collection of comment controls that allow people to filter spam and offensive comments, and specific keywords,” explains Tara Wadhwa, Director of Policy at TikTok US. “We know that comments are an important way for community members to connect with creators, and we’ll continue to develop ways to promote respectful discussion.”
