TikTok will ban content that “undermines well-established scientific consensus” on climate change and its effects.
New Climate Change Misinformation Policy
To protect the scientific consensus on climate change, TikTok has implemented a new policy to remove climate change falsehoods. This policy will collaborate with third-party fact-checking organizations to determine whether anything is true. Even while Facebook hasn’t explicitly banned climate change denial, it’s important to factor that into your thinking.
When adapting their systems to meet users’ demands, social media sites use the most up-to-date data at their disposal. As part of its Earth Month celebrations, TikTok sends users searching for climate-related material to its own climate information center, developed in collaboration with the United Nations. With this revision, the influence of climate change denial and other forms of counter-progressive rhetoric will be mitigated.
