The EU is pressuring TikTok to comply with the recently passed Digital Services Act (DSA). The DSA aims to improve moderation of content on social media platforms, including creating transparency about why certain content has been removed and how advertisers target users.

EU Commissioner Thierry Breton told Shou Zi Chew that TikTok must start adhering to the new rules well before the September 1 deadline. Under the new regulations, social networks can face fines of up to 6% of their annual revenue and things could escalate into banning the platform from operating in the EU.

“With younger audiences comes greater responsibility,” Breton told Chew. TikTok spokeswoman Caroline Greer tweeted that the platform is committed to following DSA, GDPR and Code of Practice rules on misinformation.

Breton wrote a blog post titled “Are Some Social Media Wolves in Disguise,” which you can read here. He mentions platforms with “short videos featuring upbeat music, dance routines, and visually appealing effects.” The post addresses concerns about EU user data being sent outside the EU and how the DSA aims to create a safer digital space for all European users, especially younger ones.
