WhatsApp, the world's best-known instant messaging application, has stiffened its notification delivery boundary for a long time due to the Coronavirus and started to prevent users from forwarding a message to more than five chats at a time.
Facebook, the umbrella company of WhatsApp, announced today that it has brought a message forwarding border to another instant messaging application, Messenger, with its prestige. Stating that the border of sending messages is a very effective way to prevent the spread of fake news and harmful content in a viral state, Facebook stated that a message can only be transmitted to five different singular or cluster chats with the word ending.
“As the global COVID-19 pandemic continues, we consider it critical to control the spread of fake news and harmful content.” Facebook said that the subject of kalam brought the end to make it easier for users to access real information.
WhatsApp, which brought the message forwarding feature for the first time in 2018 after the fake news that spread in viral form in India and caused the protest shows in which people lost their lives, stated in the statements made about the bet in the past months that the end of the message transmission has reduced the number of notices delivered by 70 percent. - Webtekno
