Leading short video platform TikTok has launched a new campaign called ‘Sabdhane Online’ with Jago Foundation to ensure online safety among the youth of Bangladesh. The six-month long campaign aims to create awareness among the youth of the country and ensure responsible use of the platform.
To address the challenges of cybercrime including social media harassment, scams, fraud and educate the youth about online safety, TikTok and Jago Foundation will organize day-long workshops with local social media influencers and youth in 16 districts of Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions.
In addition to the workshops, information will also be provided to the local youth community through online safety sessions. This interactive session will discuss the safe use of internet, multi-faceted use of social media, how to stay safe from cyberbullying and the importance of creating positive content for youth development.
