TikTok: Removes "bad" or "peculiar" user videos!

TikTokIn accordance with Intercept, TikTok administrators have removed "poor or bad" user videos, even with "peculiarities". Intercept describes in detail how the managers of the popular social media were invited to select content for the influential stream of "For You", an algorithmic timeline commonly visited by most users immediately after they open the app. "For You" shows users suggested videos. When a video is selected and recommended by "For You" it increases significantly views of. However, the criteria for selecting a TikTok video to appear as "For you" are unknown, as the selection may not be made automatically and randomly.TikTok "For You"

TikTok administrators have been instructed to remove videos from the "For you" stream if they do not resonate with any of the categories. Users' videos with "specials" in their appearance, which may be related to physique, height or face, were considered to be removed as a "bad" appearance makes a video less attractive. For example, if a user video with Down Syndrome or other features such as distortion gets 6.000 - 10.000 views, then its administrators platform they mention it. Through this reference, the videos of the user are not only restricted to their country but at the same time blocking it algorithm, preventing him from promoting the videos to others users.

The same policy was also adopted for videos featuring the environment reception is "worn out and ruined", since such an image offers nothing spectacular, attractive and "worth seeing". A TikTok spokesman said the platform's restrictive policy towards specific user groups was an erroneous attempt to avoid online bullying. In other words, the platform wanted to protect any people it considers "vulnerable" while at the same time discriminating itself and even unknowingly of users.

It is worth noting that the groups of users whose videos have been removed are much larger than those shown. Intercept also cites the extent of previous policies followed by TikTok, which required platform administrators to enforce China's foreign policy elsewhere. Intercept also published company policies urging managers to remove the "controversial" content"That promotes Taiwan's independence or is an" uglification "of history, such as the" incidents "in Tiananmen Square.

Intercept reports that according to one source, these policies were used at least at the end of 2019. TikTok noted that most of the guidelines presented at Intercept are either no longer used or in some cases appear never to have been implemented.

Finally, Beijing-based Unikorn Bytedance technology has been trying to separate its international efforts from its Chinese base for about a year now, but many of its staff, including application managers, still have as its headquarters China.
