TikTok launches #thinkb4youdo to promote Safe Online Behavior
TikTok, the short-form video app with a mission to inspire creativity and bring joy, today launched the #thinkb4youdo challenge to encourage Malaysian users to take a moment and think before they conduct dangerous acts on TikTok. #thinkb4youdo is a call to action for everyone using the platform to play their part in creating a safe and positive environment for the global community.
As a platform that celebrates creativity and expression, TikTok is continuously enhancing and updating its various policies and tools to ensure its millions of users feel safe and comfortable within the community. To draw greater attention to the dangers of posting harmful content for entertainment purposes, TikTok is encouraging users to participate by doing the following:
- Shoot a video and use the #thinkb4youdo sticker and follow the choreography
- Post your video along with the hashtag thinkb4youdo and set it to public
- Share it on other social platforms and invite your friends to join you
“TikTok is committed to fostering a positive and inclusive environment where users can express themselves safely,” said Cheah Sheau Mei, User and Content Operations Manager, TikTok Malaysia. “While many turn to the platform to laugh, learn, and engage with their community, some users will inevitably post content that promotes harmful behavior such as amateur stunts or dangerous challenges. As such, we’re encouraging users to take a moment and think about the implications of posting such content, as well as follow our robust policies and tools in place to help stop these issues.”
TikTok works with industry experts, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and industry associations around the world to help ensure that its policies, technology, and privacy controls protect against industry-wide challenges around platform misuse.
Promoting a safe and positive app environment is TikTok’s top priority, and it has a number of measures in place today to protect against misuse. Learn more about TikTok’s safety efforts and our community guidelines.
