INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - CEO of Tik Tok Bytemod Pte Ltd platform, Kelly Chang officially visited the Ministry of Communications and Information related to the blocking of Tik Tok, Wednesday (4/7/2018) afternoon. In a meeting with the Minister of Communication and Informatics, it fulfilled the commitment to clean and apply negative content filtering.

Kelly Chang expressed his company's willingness to comply with the existing regulations in Indonesia. In fact he insisted at this time has prepared 20 people to do filtering negative content.

"We have recruited 20 people and by the end of this year we are targeting 200 people who will handle negative content at the request of the Ministry of Communications and Informatics," he explained.

Kelly even stated that his side has prepared a program together with a number of NGOs to create special content for Indonesian children.

"We also commit to abide by the rules of the Ministry of Communications and Informatics and respect the culture in Indonesia. There will be a joint program to create children's content with NGOs and other stakeholders, "he explained.

Kelly ensures that his party will make Tik Tok a better platform by increasing relationships with stakeholders in Indonesia and benefiting the young generation of Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Menkominfo Rudiantara said asking for two commitments that must be met by Tik Tok.

"Number one commitment clears all the negative content on the platform now. We also ask for a second commitment to filter the upcoming content to avoid blocking again, "he explained.

The filtering process required for Indonesia is primarily concerned with the age limit of users.

"This commitment includes how to filter the user's age limit, which turns out in Tik Tok to be limited to 12 years old, while the Indonesian provisions are 13 or 15 years old. So we ask to raise the age limit of its users, "he concluded.
