List of newsroom posts relating to harm or safety collected from major digital media platforms
This dataset contains links to 486 newsroom posts published by five prominent digital platforms (Facebook, Tinder, YouTube, TikTok, and Twitter). Each record includes the name of the platform publishing the post, the date, the title of the post, and a URL to its original location on the official website of the platform in question.
All the newsroom posts collected were identified through content analysis as relating to harm or safety, published between November 1, 2016 – November 1, 2021, from each platforms’ newsroom or company blog. The outlets included the Twitter Blog (https://blog.twitter.com), TikTok Newsroom (https://newsroom.tiktok.com), the YouTube Official Blog (https://blog.youtube), Tinder Newsroom (https://www.tinderpressroom.com), and the Facebook (now Meta) Newsroom (https://about.fb.com/news/). While several of the platforms published newsroom posts in a range of languages, our sample only includes posts that were published in English.
