Today we released our latest Community Guidelines Enforcement Report which provides insight into the volume and nature of violative content and accounts removed from TikTok during the first three months of this year. We release these quarterly reports to bring transparency to the actions we take to help keep TikTok safe, welcoming, and entertaining for our global community.
This report has been expanded to bring ever-more transparency to our actions, progress, and challenges, and to stay accountable to our community. For instance, we now report the 30 markets with the largest volumes of removed videos which account for approximately 80% of overall video removal volume. There are also new charts for spam account activity and fake engagement. In addition, we now breakdown removals by sub-policy. As an example, we're publishing the volume of content removed for hateful ideologies and for attacks and slurs, the two sub-policies under our hateful behavior policy, as well as the percentage of content removed proactively, at zero views, and in under 24 hours by sub-policy. This data is available for download in machine readable formats to support further analysis by researchers, academics, and civil society.
Given the war in Ukraine, this report also reiterates our ongoing efforts to strengthen TikTok's policies and practices to better protect our platform and community. This includes information on content and accounts removed from the start of the invasion through the end of March as well as information on fact-checked and labeled content, and more.
