The year 2020 was to most, a year filled with social challenges, economic uncertainty, and staggered movements...
But throughout all these, TikTok chose to remain positive in order to keep spirits up and to prepare for a hopeful new year.
Here’s a good mix of fun yet vital announcements that TikTok just made to round up the year!
Year On TikTok
Wrapping up the year is a first of its kind in-app experience, with TikTok bringing each user down memory lane through their #YearOnTikTok, an interactive experience that’s exclusive to the individual’s favourites on the platform.
While having fun is the name of the game, TikTok works tirelessly to ensure that the platform remains positive and safe. Wrapping up the year with a tri-factor of updates highlights this commitment.
COVID-19 Vaccine Misinformation Blog
TikTok’s safety team came up with initiatives during the pandemic to fight misinformation via in-app banners and pages with source-verified information.
Updated Community Guidelines
As always, TikTok wants a positive environment for the community to creatively express the subjects that matter most to them – and to that end, TikTok ensured this promise is kept by continuously updating its Community Guidelines to uphold the user’s digital wellbeing.
Check out what’s new this December!
Privacy and Security on Safety Center
TikTok started a dedicated Safety Center this year to simultaneously channel their effort into protecting each individual’s connections, content, and account; with plenty of resources that address the user’s Privacy and Security as well.
Safety updates are regularly compiled here (hyperlink: https://newsroom.tiktok.com/en-my/safety), with a new set of comprehensive updates to round up 2020 rolling out on 29 December, so keep your eyes peeled!
TikTok Trendsetter Awards
But wait, that’s not all! TikTok Trendsetter Awards contest was introduced to agencies and professionals across Southeast Asia with the goal of solving real-world marketing challenges through clever use of the app.
In the spirit of giving, TikTok is extending the Trendsetter Awards submission deadline to 15th January 2021!
Despite all that was 2020, the heart and creativity of the TikTok community continued to shine bright as the home to happy laughs and good vibes.
Underscored by TikTok’s robust commitment to trust and safety, we can look forward to a safe, positive, and hopeful 2021!
