Don’t you like to forward messages in your WhatsApp chats? Well, here is big news for you. Now WhatsApp is going to limit users to forward a message just five times. This thing is going to help to lessen the spread of fake news or misinformation.
In recent times, WhatsApp was used to spread fake news stories in a lot of countries around the globe including Brazil and parts of Africa. A fresh and yet very famous case was related to the presidential elections of Brazil in which false news was circulated regarding the voting information and untrue stories circling around the presidential candidates.
In the start, WhatsApp limited messages to forward them to 20 people in July prior to testing the five time forwarding limit in India.
Earlier than this latest update, a WhatsApp user was able to forward a single message to about 256 people.
It is yet to be found out whether this feature is going to help in lessening the spread of fake information and news.
