To help fight fake news using Machine Learning
« on: July 12, 2018, 08:22:58 PM »
WhatsApp wants to fight the spread of fake news — and that means a meaningful change is coming to its app.

On Tuesday, the company announced it's adding labels to forwarded messages so users can better identify rumors, fake news, and other false information that often spreads via the messaging app.


With the update, forwarded messages will have a small "forwarded" label, similar to forwarded email messages, indicating the note was originally written by someone other than the sender.

It may seem like a minor update, but it's one the company says could help people identify fake news and other types of misinformation. "WhatsApp cares deeply about your safety. We encourage you to think before sharing messages that were forwarded," the company wrote in a blog post.
