The updated center will house all TikTok’s historical Transparency Reports as well as more interactive reports going forward.
These includes the H1 2021 Content Removal Requests Reports that were published on Thursday.
Over the years, these Transparency Reports have been playing an important role in staying accountable to the actions that TikTok takes to safeguard the platform and protect its integrity.
With building trust through transparency in mind, TikTok began releasing these reports in 2019 and has continued to evolve them with new, deeper, and industry-first data disclosures.
“These include the volume of suspected underage account removals we made, or the number of ads we rejected for not meeting our standards.” The transparency report reads.
The report includes Community Guidelines Enforcement Report that offers quarterly insight into the actions TikTok takes to uphold its Community Guidelines and Terms of Service.
The Information Requests Report that provides bi-annual data on the legal requests for user information TikTok receives from Government and law enforcement agencies and the nature of their response.
Government Removal Request Report that details the requests TikTok receives bi-annually from government agencies to restrict content and any actions TikTok took as a result.
Intellectual Property Removal Requests Report that shows the volume of copyright and trademark content take-down notices and TikTok’s response on a bi-annual basis.
“TikTok gathered feedback from civil society organisations and experts as they developed the refreshed report formats and are putting its input into action. They are introducing the ability to download data in machine readable formats,” Tik Tok said.
Additionally, the reports are now much more visual, with interactive charts and graphs to better illustrate the data and their actions.
These reports will be published in 26 languages, including Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Melayu, Bengali, Burmese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Turkish, Russian, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
The goal is to make TikToks Transparency Centre a one-stop shop to learn about how the platform moderates and recommends content, develops products, and safeguards people’s information.
Today’s updates are a continuation of that goal, and TikTok is excited to share more updates along the way.
