As a result, videos that are tagged with these hashtags will no longer be displayed on the app homepage (“For you”) and in the “Follow me” feed. Videos can already be marked as “Not interesting”. However, this only means that other videos created by the same user will be skipped.
Tiktok: planned age restrictions
Another upcoming innovation is age restrictions: a new system is to classify content – based on its suitability for a younger audience. If a video contains “adult or complex topics” as well as “fictional scenes that might be too scary or intense for a younger audience,” the post will be blocked for under-18s.
This group would then only be displayed: “Contribution not available. This post has an age restriction.” According to the information, the locking system has not yet been fully developed, but it is still planned to go into operation as a “first version” in the next few weeks.
Anyone who signs up for Tiktok must provide their date of birth. The minimum age for use is 13 years. If parents install the app themselves on their smartphone, they can activate a mode to accompany their child on Tiktok.
