TikTok is announcing a package of new changes to make it easier for people to access independent resources when they need them.
- Additional well-being resources to support community: To help our community safely share their personal experiences, we’re rolling out new well-being guides developed with the guidance of independent experts, including the International Association for Suicide Prevention, Crisis Text Line, Live For Tomorrow,Samaritans of Singapore and Samaritans (UK). The guides, which are available on our Safety Centre, also offer tips to help our community members responsibly engage with someone who may be struggling or in distress.
- Expanded guide on eating disorders: We’re expanding our available Safety Centre resources on eating disorders for teens, caregivers, and educators. Developed in consultation with independent experts, this guide will provide information, support and advice on eating disorders.
- Strengthening notices on search results: We are updating our existing warning label for sensitive content. In the coming weeks, when a user searches for terms that may bring up content that some may find distressing, for example ‘scary make-up’, the search results page will be covered with an opt-in viewing screen. Individuals will be able to click ‘Show results’ to continue to see the content.
