The Safe Internet League asked Roskomnadzor to check the social network TikTok because of content about suicide, drugs and insulting the feelings of believers. The organization urged the department to take action. For example, slow down traffic, as it did with Twitter.
– The Safe Internet League contacted Roskomnadzor in connection with the distribution of a large number of prohibited content on the TikTok platform. The organization notes that there is practically no moderation of such content in this social network, – quotes the head of the League, Ekaterina Mizulina TASS.
The organization noted that now the social network is extremely popular among young people, and also expressed concern about the increase in the number of cases of child suicide caused by various publications on the Web. The league called on Roskomnadzor to take measures up to slowing traffic.
Earlier, experts from the Association of Professional Users of Social Networks and Messengers identified about 1.7 thousand videos on TikTok promoting suicide among adolescents. As noted by experts, this is the highest indicator among large media platforms. It is noted that the study was conducted from the end of March to June of this year. In addition to the TikTok network, experts also analyzed content on Facebook, Instagram and VKontakte.
