How to block abusive comments and anti-bullying on TikTok
TikTok V recently provided two new features that help the user to block offensive and harmful comments, and before that in December 2020 it began implementing stronger policies to combat bullying and cyberbullying.
The application (TikTok) is one of the social networking applications that have very high rates of prevalence of bullying and bullying directed at content makers, especially teenagers, so the company began implementing many new strategies to combat bullying and reduce it to maintain the safety of application users.
How to combat bullying: Prevent swearing and insulting in TikTok:
1- New comment approval feature in the TikTok app:
It has expanded the feature as the app can now hide all new comments in posts until the user reviews and approves them, as messages that he generally approves of will appear in the comments section, while comments that the user ignore will be permanently blocked.
TikTok previously provided a feature that allows users to filter comments by keyword so that they can prevent insults, profanity, or other problematic content from being posted on their videos.
To enable and enable the review of new comments in the TikTok app, follow these steps:
- Open the TikTok app and then go to your personal account.
- Click on the three dots in the top left hand side.
- From the list that appears to you, press the option (Privacy) Privacy.
- On the next screen, tap on the option (Who can comment on my videos).
- Select Comment filters.
- Switch the button next to Filter all comments to ON.
To see all comments pending on TikTok, follow these steps:
- Return to the Comment filters list.
- Click on the "Review filtered comments" option.
- Tap any comment, then decide whether you want to delete it or agree to post it.
2- Using Artificial Intelligence to review comments:
The TikTok app now automatically scans comments before the user publishes them, by using artificial intelligence to identify language that conflicts with service policies, in addition to a new comment review tool,
Hence, if a comment is found containing one of the banned words previously saved in TikTok's AI algorithms, a warning will appear to the user telling them that the comment they want to post may violate the rules while giving them an opportunity to review the comment or post it anyway.
Users will not be prevented from writing potentially offensive comments, as users can bypass TikTok warnings and requests to reconsider and post their comments anyway.
Often even if they do, the owner of the video is expected to be able to block the comment at the end by using the approval feature of previous comments and preventing them from appearing in the comments section of their post in the TikTok app.
