They started the forum by briefly introducing themselves and the directly jumping on topics of Online Etiquette, Credibility and Creativity and Trust Currency highlighting and relating to Tiktok Community Guidelines. TikTok assures  everyone that they prioritizes safety, diversity, inclusion, and authenticity for everyone who uses the platform. They also update it from time to time to evolve alongside trends as part of their commitment to keeping it a safe space for creativity and joy

TikTok makes sure that the community guidelines adheres to these 3 pillars; Trust and Safety, Positive Space and Digital Literacy. For the first pillar, they made sure to keep the community safe and creative. They delegated a team that leads on-platform content moderation and ensures adherence to guidelines. TikTok also partnered with leading news agency, Agence France-Presse, to help verify harmful misinformation so they can remove it on the platform. Second pillar is making sure that creators use credible sources of information on the platform. TikTok has long prohibited political advertising, including both paid ads on the platform and creators being paid directly to make branded content. Political content is prohibited in advertisements, and this restriction is also now applied at account level. TikTok classifies relevant political TikTok accounts as a Government, Politician, and Political Party Account (GPPPA) and applies a number of policies that help prevent misuse of certain features. The accounts will be prohibited from any form of monetization on the platform or solicitation for fundraising to prevent misuse of the platform and ensure an enjoyable experience for all. 

The third and last pillar talks about supporting the digital literacy efforts with multi-sectoral partners. Tiktok created the Digital Literacy Hub which is a one-stop portal of resources for driving safer online experiences for everyone. There are topics that promote mental wellbeing, cyber wellness, minor safety, potentially dangerous online challenges, and other digital literacy topics.

Tiktok also shared previous initiatives where in they partnered with multisector organizations like United Nations Development Programme, GMA News, Comelec, PGI and Internews.

Tiktok promises to continue having initiatives that will raise awareness about its community guidelines and how they can combat challenges against trolls, disinformation and harmful content.
