  So,to stop this act,WhatsApp is now making a restriction for all of its members to forward any messages only upto five times a day. Until now,users elsewhere can forward messages upto 20 times.


  This update news was officially announced at an event in Jakarta ,Indonesia whose elections will be held in April. They have been evaluating the results of its half year long test in the country. A spokeswoman said," The forward limit significantly reduces forward messages around the world.This  will help keep WhatsApp focused on private messaging with close contacts. We'll continue to listen to user feedback about their experience, and over time, look for new ways of addressing viral content."


 Also,in last week,Facebook removed 500 accounts and pages which were allegedly involved in sharing the Fake news in Central Europe, Ukraine and other Eastern European nations.
