WhatsApp Restricts Forwarding of Messages to Just 20 Users To Curb Fake News

The developers of WhatsApp have actively engaged in war with the distribution of fake news on Whatsapp. In the last update where they made it obvious by indicating whether the message was typed by the sender or just forwarded with a 'forward indicator'. Now the platform has taken the war to another level by restricting the forwarding of messages to just '20' users.

This move by WhatsApp would generate mixed reactions obviously, because for bloggers like me who share links to various groups now are also restricted, but nevertheless it is a welcome move because the issue of fake news is getting out of hands. This update now means the news or information passed by the message can now be easily traced to the source, confirming whether its fake or not. Maybe with this update from WhatsApp the 'forward this message of you want to make heaven to 50 people' will reduce now.

Other social platforms and online messaging apps are most likely to enforce similar rules in the future.

What do you think about the move by WhatsApp, Is it a favorable one or would reduce the user experience ratings? ... Have your Say! using the comment box below
