Reduce Fake Notifications By Limiting , WhatsApp Forwarding
California Cyber security security and false news and media experts say Whats App needs to restrict itself to sending messages
Whats App cannot voluntarily access 20 people in a message in January this year which is limited to only 5 people. Earlier, a Whats App message could be sent to 256 people who restricted it to 20 and then 5 more were accessed.
In Brazil and India, the Whats App was widely allowed to become standalone. The Whats App itself was also helpful in making rumors with the subsequent Facebook and events.
In response, the WhatsApp previously reduced the 256 option to 20 and can now send messages to only 5 different people at a time. But cyber experts say WhatsApp messaging focuses on more people than Twitter-trend and Facebook, which is very difficult to capture.
In this regard, MIT student karan Gormel a, who hails from India, said that the process of restricting messages from the WhatsApp has been a bit effective, but more work is still needed. According to Kiran , the depth and utility of the whats App is difficult to estimate.
To this end, they have access to tens of thousands of people and political parties and groups in Brazil, India and Indonesia. Subsequently, six million messages were exchanged in all three countries.
He then created a network model and tested different options in virtual environments or simulations, and set the limits for sending messages to them. This is how the spread of true or false information was reviewed. They found that limiting the message to only 5 people made the messages viral. 80 the messages died within two days, while 20% of the messages remained up and running.
Experts have suggested the WhatsApp “quarantine” as a way to restrict direct access to specific messages to specific people. But first, the health of the message that goes viral needs to be evaluated and its confirmation is true or false.
