Russian experts conducted a study and found about 1,700 videos on TikTok are promoting suicide among adolescents, Izvestia reported.

According to the experts, this figure was the highest among all major platforms.

They expressed concern that TikTok has become the absolute leader in the distribution of content with hashtags related to death groups. Action against foreign social networks in connection with unsatisfactory work to combat suicidal tendencies should have been taken, they noted.

The study was conducted from late March to early June this year. The experts also analyzed the content posted on Facebook, Instagram and VK.

The press service of TikTok told the publication that safety is the absolute priority of the service.
