Pakistan ranks second globally for violating ‘TikTok-Community Guidelines’
More than 12 million videos were removed from TikTok with the removal rate of 96.5 percent between January to March 2022, making Pakistan the second country in the world to take down the largest volume of videos for violation of the TikTok’s community guidelines.
A statement released by TikTok said that 96.5 percent of videos that violated community guidelines were deleted before they were viewed by anyone, while 97 percent of videos were deleted after 24 hours.
According to the statement, after deleting a record number of videos in the first quarter of the year, Pakistan came second in the list of inappropriate video deletions, which means Pakistan has the highest number of deleted videos in the world after the United States.
The report said that in Pakistan, about 97 percent of videos violating community guidelines were deleted before being viewed even once, while about 98 percent of videos were deleted after being viewed few times.
According to the report, deleted videos were assessed for violations of community guidelines based on the comments on the videos and automated features.
The report stated that like Pakistan, videos containing violation of community guidelines were deleted in other countries of the world as most videos were deleted in the United States, with a number of more than 14 million and Pakistan remained on second where more than 12 million videos were deleted.
