It is not uncommon for anything that is deemed offensive to be posted on social media platforms, where it is promptly deleted after being reported. TikTok is not the only social media platform that engages in this practice; Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter are also guilty of it.

Recently, the short-form video platform announced the release of its most current Community Guidelines Enforcement Report, which covers the period of April to June. “Building on its commitment to a multi-pronged effort to fight disinformation on the platform” is the goal of the report.

Across 113,809,300 videos from all over the world were removed from TikTok’s platform during the second quarter of the year 2022. This hardly accounts for 1% of the total material that is posted to the site each and every quarter.

Around 15.4 million of these videos originated in Pakistan, placing our nation in second place on the list of countries with the highest number of videos removed during the second quarter of 2022. The primary reason for this decision is that the Community Guidelines of TikTok had been violated by these movies.

Within the first twenty-four hours after they were uploaded, 97% of these movies were taken down from the platform. 98% of them were removed because other users reported them, and 97% of them were removed before they even had any views. In addition, TikTok eliminated a substantial number of spam and false accounts from the platform; however, the precise number was not disclosed.

TikTok is not the only social network that has the ability to censor or prohibit content from appearing on its site. Additionally, millions of videos have been removed from YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. The content typically includes sexually explicit or violent imagery, both of which have no place on this site. In addition to being banned, deceptive content is frequently removed.

The content moderation policies of the world’s largest social media platforms have gotten far more stringent. Whatever in the past could have been seen as proper for the general audience is not going to cut it in today’s society. Particularly strict in this sense is YouTube’s content policy. The video-sharing site will not allow you to generate money off of recordings that include any kind of explicit content or language that is considered offensive.
