TikTok Proposes Collaboration of Social Media Platforms to Prevent Graphic Content

Video sharing app TikTok has presented a proposal for the alliance of nine social media giants to ensure the prevention of graphic content such as suicide and violence. The proposal came in after a man committed suicide on Facebook live stream earlier this month.

In a letter written to the chief executives of Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, Snapchat, Pinterest and Reddit, TikTok extended a collaboration idea to make collective efforts for identifying and removing harmful data. While the app acknowledged that all social media platforms have their own measures in place as well.

“However, we believe each of our individual efforts to safeguard our own users and the collective community would be boosted significantly through a formal, collaborative approach to early identification and notification amongst industry participants of extremely violent, graphic content, including suicide,” TikTok’s interim CEO Vanessa Pappas said.
