TikTok, the popular entertainment platform with over 1 billion monthly active users globally, recently held its first-ever event in Pakistan as it launched its Safety Ambassadors Programme. The aim of this programme is to create awareness around digital safety in the country. TikTok is renowned for its innovative and diverse community, and its emphasis on user protection and safety. The #SaferTogether campaign in Pakistan is another step in that direction for the platform.
The star-studded panel discussion at the event included some of Pakistan’s most renowned content creators, such as Taimur Salahuddin (aka Mooroo), Irfan Junejo, Faiza Saleem, Amtul Haseen Baweja, Hamza Bhatti, Areeka Haq, Anoushey Ashraf, and Kazi Muhammad Akber. The panelists discussed various aspects around digital safety, including misinformation, harassment and cyberbullying, and online scams. They advocated for responsible usage of the internet and safe content creation.
The campaign is a part of TikTok’s goal to foster a safe and welcoming platform for its vibrant and diverse communities. With the #SaferTogether initiative, TikTok aims to create awareness about how users can take advantage of the various in-app safety features available on the platform.
TikTok’s safety features are also available in the Safety Centre, a centralized location for safety updates. The Safety Centre provides updated information on all actions that TikTok implements to continuously boost safety and security on the platform. It also contains all the tools and tips about TikTok’s safety features and measures, including the New User Safety Guide, Guide for Parents, resources on what to do to ensure safety, and a thorough Privacy Guide. The Safety Centre is regularly updated to stay ahead of the curve and ensure proper guidelines are in place for its users.
TikTok has a robust set of Community Guidelines in place to moderate inappropriate content and behaviour. The Community Guidelines are available in both English and Urdu languages. TikTok has zero tolerance for harmful content that incites violence against other users or any content that violates its Community Guidelines. TikTok leaves no stones unturned to ensure the safety and well-being of its users.
The Safety Ambassadors Programme reinforces TikTok’s commitment to digital safety as the platform continues to combat the industry-wide issue of online and offline safety of users. The campaign is also a reminder of TikTok’s proactive efforts in educating users about safety, misinformation, and the power of authentic content. Guests were also given tips and guidelines on how they could become good content creators by creating compelling content. During the question and answer session, the audience interacted with the creators and gained exciting insights into the different challenges of content creation.
