TikTok to Block Suicidal Clips
Social media video-sharing app, TikTok has considered pulling down videos that promote suicide.
This development follows the circulation of a man who filmed the act on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook as well.
At the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, most subscribers took to TikTok to display their talents in mimicked videos, as most countries went into lockdown.
Issuing a warning by one of their representatives read: "Our systems have been automatically detecting and flagging these clips for violating our policies against content that displays, praises, glorifies, or promotes suicide".
"We appreciate our community members who've reported content and warned others against watching, engaging, or sharing such videos on any platform, out of respect for the person and their family."
TikTok's algorithms often recommend content from people not directly followed by a user.
Several people have streamed suicides on Facebook live since its launch in 2015.
