KARACHI: Social media app TikTok has removed nearly 6.5 million videos in its Pakistan market between January to March this year for violating the platform’s policies. This makes Pakistan the second largest market to get the most videos removed in the world from TikTok after the US.
The videos from the Pakistani market violated TikTok’s community guidelines, terms of service and some were promoting COVID-19 misinformation, according to TikTok’s quarterly transparency report released on Wednesday.
During the three-month period from January till March 2021, 61,951,327 videos were removed globally, which is less than 1% of all videos uploaded on TikTok.
