- TikTok is experimenting with “dislike” buttons in comment sections.
- It is possible for users to flag comments that are irrelevant or inappropriate.
- TikTok has said that it will make a final decision on whether or not to fully use the functionality in the coming weeks.
- About 1% of all videos on TikTok were removed due to transgressions, according to TikTok’s transparency report issued recently.
According to a statement from TikTok, the business is testing a tool that lets users hate specific comments on videos. Individuals may flag remarks they find “irrelevant or unsuitable” without the dislike being shown to others, according to a TikTok blog post on safety and community rules enforcement. Various iterations of the option were detected earlier this year by certain users.
TikTok adds that “this community input will be added to the spectrum of parameters we currently use to help keep the comment area continuously relevant and a place for real conversation.”
The business also claims it’s experimenting with sending notifications to artists who get a large number of unfavourable comments about capabilities like comment filtering and bulk banning and deleting. TikTok said it will decide in the next few weeks whether or not to use the feature in full.
According to TikTok’s transparency report, published recently, about 1% of all videos published on the app were taken down because of infractions.
