The regulator has listed a number of measures that video-sharing platforms such as TikTok, Twitch and YouTube must follow in order to protect their users. These online-based giants will be ordered to take “appropriate measures” to protect users on the platform from content that is related to child sexual abuse, terrorism and racism. The action of Ofcom came following results of research showing a third of users have seen hateful content on these sites.
The video sharing platforms will be required to both provide and enforce clear rules for the content that is uploaded to their site. In addition to this, the reporting process must be streamlined and be as easy as possible. The final demand is that adult content must be restricted with robust age verification.

The affiliate marketing industry may benefit from these new regulations, as it will allow for a number of brands to feel confident having affiliates who primarily use video sharing platforms to promote products.
