Center for Countering Digital Hate

Time to #FixTikTok

Our researchers studied TikTok and discovered that the ‘For You’ algorithm bombards teens with harmful content within minutes - including body image, mental health, eating disorder, and self-harm videos. 

An average teen spends ~80 minutes a day on TikTok. Within this time, young teens would see:

  • Videos about mental health and body image every 39 seconds
  • Suicide content within 2.6 minutes
  • Eating disorder content within 8 minutes

TikTok must stop enabling the spread of harmful content into young people’s feeds and #FixTikTok.
