TikTok responds to concerns regarding its new "Focused View" feature
TikTok response to the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, 23 March 2023:
"TikTok's Focused View product does not use emotion recognition techniques.
Focused View is a tool available for advertisers to serve their ads to people more likely to actively engage with an ad. With Focused View, brands only pay when users have watched an ad for at least 6 seconds or when they interacted with the ad within the first 6 seconds (whichever comes first).
