Can You Curse on TikTok

It seems like everywhere you look these days, you see people making videos on TikTok. Whether you’re scrolling through your feed, or you’re looking for something specific. There’s a good chance that you’ll see at least one person adding to the ever-growing catalog of content on the platform. But what you might not realize is that many users on TikTok started swearing on their videos.

Can You Curse on TikTok? When it comes to swearing in videos, most social media platforms have pretty strict rules. On TikTok, though, you’re pretty much allowed to swear.

TikTok doesn’t enforce a set of community guidelines for its users. This means that you’re free to post whatever you want. As long as it doesn’t result in a community guidelines violation. This also means that your video won’t get taken down if it contains some swear words. But the use of racial slurs, or any other terms that are targeted toward a certain group, is strictly prohibited.

TikTok Banned Words List

TikTok is a social media platform often compared to Instagram. While it’s still relatively young, TikTok has already become a powerful tool for expression and community building. The platform has been used to share videos of all kinds of experiences and interests. But as the platform has grown, it has also come into contact with the broader conversations happening in the wider world. Like any powerful medium, this has led to it being utilized in a new way. It’s now often the case that TikTok videos are down weighted on the basis of their content and the identity of the user.

Using certain words may indeed result in the videos getting banned. The list of banned words included racial slurs and hate speech. Such as political dissidents, LGBT people, disabled people, and certain African-Americans hashtags. This is a good step towards the platform taking a more proactive approach to filter out hate speech.

How To Make TikTok Safe For Kids

The short looping videos kids scroll through always leave them wanting more. As they get totally intrigued by what new videos the TikTok algorithm will serve up next. Minutes can easily turn into hours as kids watch videos or as they work to make their own. Consuming and creating content in this fast paced way can often lead to overuse.

TikTok acknowledges the addictive nature of their app and they’ve even started to produce their own little PSA style videos. That shows up every now and then while kids are scrolling to remind them to take a break.

TikTok also offers screen time management in their settings. However, the limit is currently set to 60 minutes by default which seems kind of high. It’s also protected by a passcode that can be set by parents.

Parental controls called family pairing will allow parents to take ownership of their kids’ TikTok accounts. And they can manage all of these settings remotely from their own devices to keep the place safe.

Final Thought

The best advice I can give in regards to creating successful videos on TikTok is to make sure your content is relevant and true to your brand’s identity. Although the app does not ban all swearing, the use of swear words can limit the reach a video receives. It is best to avoid foul language when possible. Instead, the best strategy is to create videos that are relevant to your brand’s identity and reflect the mission and values of your business.
