TikTok now lets you “dislike” comments

ABC Technology/EP


TikTok has introduced in the social network the button that allows you to indicate ‘Dislike‘, which is now available globally in order to relegate comments that users consider irrelevant or inappropriate.

The new ‘I don’t like’ button has begun its deployment to the entire user base of the social network, such as one more moderation toolwhich will help the platform discover potential spam, trolling or hate speech content.

Users will be able to indicate that a comment seems inappropriate or irrelevant by marking the button with the thumbs down, or unmark it if they change their mind, as collected in ‘Engadget’. In any case, the count of ‘dislikes’ will not be public to prevent harassment or targeted attacks organized by user groups.

Dislikes began testing in the spring, along with new notifications for creators to let them know there are controls in the platform to filter, block, and remove comments.
