With Pakistan's presidential election due by February 2024, TikTok is sharing its efforts to combat misinformation and maintain fair elections on its platform. The platform's latest plans show that it is committed to providing a safe, accurate and useful information space at this important time.

Building its global base to combat disinformation, TikTok has partnered with Agence France-Presse (AFP), an international fact-checking agency, to address issues in the context of Pakistan's elections.

Additionally, TikTok works closely with community organizations in Pakistan to ensure the integrity of the platform. These partnerships allow TikTok to identify misinformation, act on it, and share accurate information about important events with the community. TikTok's fact-checking partners do not review the platform's content, but their reviews provide important insights to help TikTok take the necessary steps to support its social model.

TikTok's strategy includes new products designed to encourage user experience and engagement in integrity management on the platform. TikTok has launched Pakistan Election Center on the platform, a dedicated hub available in English and Urdu that will direct users to election-related information, including voting procedures and locations. Additionally, user-friendly reporting tools will make it easier for users to detect and report inappropriate content. This user-focused approach promotes an alert and responsible society, which is important during elections.

Additionally, TikTok is committed to making users more knowledgeable by providing educational content and tips on the app. These measures aim to provide the community with the necessary skills to monitor reliable information and thus encourage informed participation in the electoral process.

Adhering to TikTok's Community Guidelines (available in English and Urdu) is central to its strategy to combat misinformation. The platform uses a variety of methods to remove content that violates our guidelines, redirect search results to authorized sites, and minimize the discovery of unauthorized information. This generalization ensures that the platform remains safe from illegal political activities.

Transparency and collaboration are the main things TikTok does. TikTok has worked closely with experts, safety boards and non-governmental organizations to develop its policy and ensure valuable information is kept in the app. This partnership reflects TikTok's commitment to social media.

According to Pakistan's election process, TikTok is committed to ensuring the accuracy of information and facts while ensuring that its platform remains a source of joy and creativity. TikTok continues to strengthen its communities in Pakistan and around the world by creating a digital environment where original content can thrive and combating misinformation.
