Warning re. TIKTOK

September 8th 2020

Shetland Youth & Employability Services have alerted the Shetland Public Protection Committee to distressing images of suicide shared through TIKTOK. Please alert colleagues and please be aware that people may be very distressed by this. Users report that the distressing footage is being placed inside of other, seemingly unrelated videos, so that it may appear without warning in users’ feeds. This may particularly impact on young people and parents may want to support their children to suspend their use of TIKTOK over the coming days.
