WhatsApp joins the war against Fake News, The message which is normally distributed on its platform through forwarding.

The last time on fight against fake news was the forward indicator that comes with a message received from your friend, to show that the message was not typed by him/her. And now, the popular messaging service will no longer be able to forward messages to more than 20 people.

The recent move by WhatsApp is really a welcome one as the fake news could easily be tracked to an extent. This could help reduce fake news but forwarding fake news messages to 20 people may still appears to be too much as maximum 4 or 5 could easily help in tracing the source. Presently other social media’s are considering taken the same decision.
