WhatsApp puts limit on message forwarding to fight fake news

WhatsApp is globally limiting the number of times a user can forward a message to five, in a bid to fight ’misinformation and rumors’. This expands globally a measure WhatsApp put into place in India in July last year after the spread of rumors on social media led to killings and lynching attempts. Previously, a WhatsApp user could forward a message to 20 individuals or groups.
