TikTok announced today that it is adding a dislike button in its comments section. The feature was first mentioned by TikTok in April 2022 in an effort to encourage kindness on the platform.
In a tweet, TikTok Comms said the system was to allow users to identify unwelcome or unwelcome comments on the social media app. After testing, it is now rolling out to users worldwide. TikTok said the dislike button will allow users to send feedback and improve the comment sections of the site.
A fresh feature is coming. Earlier this year, we started to research a fresh way people might detect comments they believe to be irrelevant or inappropriate. We''re now expanding it internationally. Read on for three quick facts.
Only one TikTok user will be notified and not other users or the owner of the content. The action can be undone anytime by tapping on the dislike button again.
Only the person who expressed a dislike on a comment will be able to see that they have done so.
