WhatsApp Makes Major Announcement {Must Read}


WhatsApp Inc with over 1.5million active users has decided to implement a new policy to its "Forward Message Tool".

Before now, WhatsApp users can forward 20 messages to individuals or groups which has caused misuse of the feature.

This restriction now restricts users to share not more than 5 posts a day to curb misinformation and rumours via the platform.

The limit of five is an expansion of a measure WhatsApp put in place in India in July after the spread of rumours on social media led to killings and lynching attempts.

“We’re imposing a limit of five messages all over the world as of today,” Victoria Grand, Vice President for Policy and Communications at WhatsApp, said at an event in the Indonesian capital.

This followed global concern that the platform was being used to spread fake news, manipulated photos, videos without context, and audio hoaxes, with no way to monitor their origin or full reach.
