TikTok will ban accounts that frequently violate terms from recommendations for the “For You” feed


For your information, the ‘For You timeline uses an algorithm to suggest content that TikTok feels is compatible with your' tastes. Everyone has their algorithm so content from unfollowed accounts will be recommended. Today, TikTok has updated its user guidelines and will issue a warning to accounts found to violate the site's terms and conditions. That said, what should you know about it?

In addition, accounts that upload conspiracy theories, sexual content, unhealthy eating practices and various other unauthorised topics will be prevented from appearing on the For You timeline. With this, the account cannot abuse the topic that is going viral to get views. This content barrier system will be in effect from May 17.

Moreover, if your account is blocked, TikTok will provide a notification and you will be allowed to appeal in the event of a mistake. Also introduced is the 'Account Check' feature which shows the status of the last 30 videos uploaded by the user. Account owners can see if they have violated the site's terms and whether their videos have been deleted by TikTok.

Hopefully, these changes will encourage content creators in Malaysia to produce healthier and more positive content. After all, nobody feeds from TikTok more than the younger generations. So, it should be interesting to see how they will react to these changes.
