"TikTok’s “For You” page(FYP) recommendation algorithm appears to be leading users down far-right rabbit holes. By analyzing and coding over 400 recommended videos after interacting solely with transphobic content, Media Matters traced how TikTok’s recommendation algorithm quickly began populating our research account’s FYP with hateful and far-right content.
TikTok has long been scrutinized for its dangerousalgorithm, viralmisinformation, and hatefulvideo recommendations, yet this new research demonstrates how the company’s recommendation algorithm can quickly radicalize a user’s FYP."
