Today's communications services today are essentially limited social networks, especially when multi-member groups are available. Add to this the possibility of forwarding messages and there is the possibility to spread specific content among a large number of users. Unfortunately, these features are used to spread false or alarms. WhatsApp wants to limit message forwarding in this area, so it introduces a new limit.
New message limit
WhatsApp has in the past implemented several anti-spreading measures in an uncontrollable way. Unfortunately, the service cannot control what is content because the network is encrypted. On the other hand, the number of forwarding can be monitored. This is the focus of all measures.
In the past, we have seen, for example, a graphic representation that a message is being forwarded, which should have warned users that there might be something wrong. Subsequently, the number of forwarding to groups or contacts was reduced. This allowed you to forward the message to five subjects. WhatsApp says it has reduced the forwarding rate by 25%.
WhatsApp is for private messaging. So we've taken steps to ensure the confidential nature of conversations that take place in the app over the years. It is precisely the possibility of forwarding messages that we have previously restricted in order to prevent their spreading to an unhealthy extent. The measure then led to a 25% decrease in the number of messages forwarded worldwide.
Today, however, even this measure is not enough. For example, there is now information that 5G is the cause of coronavirus or that it absorbs oxygen, making it impossible for people to breathe. This situation has exacerbated the situation that the UK has damaged 5G transmitters (someone lit them). It is precisely against such alarms that it is necessary to fight. So WhatsApp went on to further limit.
