2.4 million videos posted by Vietnamese users on TikTok removed

According to TikTok's latest report, this platform removed more than 2.4 million videos in the Vietnamese market in Q1/2022.

Of the videos, 92.5% were removed by scanning technology and 88.7% were deleted before there were any views. Within 24 hours of posting, 94% of the offending videos were taken down from social media.

The videos were removed as they violated TikTok Community Standards such as containing hostile thought, violent extremism, nudity and sexual activities, illegal activities, violent and gruesome content, and acts of harassment, bullying and suicide.

According to TikTok, in the category of content that violates the policy of the safety of minors, videos containing nudity and sexual activity involving minors accounted for the highest number of the deleted videos. 

In this category there were also videos about harmful behavior of minors, those with content that harms physical and psychological behaviours of children.

TikTok, Facebook, Instagram... are currently attractive content platforms for users of all ages. They are also promising playgrounds for content creators who can "make money" through the production of articles, videos, etc.

However, the online environment also contains unsafe things when some users post inappropriate content, adversely affecting young people.

Digital content platforms, thus, have to gradually tighten community standards and integrate more toolkits to filter and control the content that users upload.

TikTok focuses  on designing algorithms to detect and enforce community standards on a large scale. Moderator feedback is also an important factor in improving the accuracy of the content moderation process. Accordingly, popular videos will be re-evaluated to rule out the possibility of infringing content spreading widely on the platform.

The Ministry of Information and Communications of Vietnam has implemented solutions to force businesses providing cross-border services like Facebook, Google and Apple to comply with Vietnamese law, control, restrict, prevent and remove fake, bad, harmful and objectionable information on social networks.

In 2021, the ministry coordinated with agencies to handle and block about 2,000 websites, images and articles containing bad and toxic content.
