Is TikTok really the appropriate platform regarding age? Volunteers must be over 18.

According to this, there are more than 75% of users who are 18+… At least in US…

One good point is 60% of the users are female…–%20As%20we%20mentioned,between%20the%20ages%2025-44.

But I keep myself away from that anyway :slight_smile:

Hey, as Bozden, highlighted there are Tiktok Users over 18+, i think what we could do is to premise on the social media campaigns that you have to be 19+ and maybe a link to the Terms of Conditions. Let me know what you think


@heyhillary, terms and privacy links are still not working…

Hey @bozden,

Currently due to timezones, our lead engineer is currently online. Apologies for any inconvience.


No problem on my side… As you did put the link to them in the campaign document, I just wanted to ping…

Hey everyone,

Today we launch the start of the Community Social Media Campaign. If you can please share your links here !


Today we opened “Common Voice Turkish Volunteers” Facebook Group as a core, trying to expand circle by circle. Prepared and posted some draft teaser graphic designs there, suitable for FB and Instagram.
Now we can start to build a real community… Much work to do…


I made a dedicated video to inspire my german community to make some recordings and / or check some recordings, to make better on edge (e.g. Raspberry Pi) open source voice assistants someday!


That is sooooo cool, thanks for creating the video !



After some busy weeks, we will be starting the Turkish campaign on November 1st, which is the 93th anniversary of the “Alphabet Revolution” (Harf Devrimi) where the Latin alphabet is introduced in the new Turkish Republic.

We opened the following social media channels and we are also preparing a website. We will introduce each channel week by week to measure its effectiveness. Also, we will come out in waves of new slogans/visuals.

We chose Facebook as our “home” because it is widely used in Turkey and allows us to build Guides etc. We (a core group of 4) started expanding the circles while waiting for server problems to be solved.

You may like to look at our YouTube channel where we published some guiding videos. We would also be happy if you follow us in channels you are using. Perhaps we can make some joint efforts in the future?

Primary Channels:
Facebook Group: (our “home”)
Telegram Group: (support & IM channel)

Other Supportive Channels:
LinkedIn Page:


Good luck with the campain!.
