After the spread of news and electronic threats quickly through the application of whatsapp, especially in India, Facebook has published ads full pages to warn against counterfeit news on its application to reduce the abuse and stop the danger from them.
whatsapp is an application that helps spread counterfeit news very quickly because of the nature of the application by publishing news to all contacts, which will make the other contacts to publish it to their contacts and so on, which means the spread of news and false threats very quickly with the expansion of application users in India.
“We have launched an education campaign in India to raise awareness among citizens and help them know the right false news to be investigated before they are published,” whatsapp spokesman told TechCrunch. “The company will publish many similar ads in local newspapers in India to reach all users.
“Question information that upsets you”, says WhatsApp’s full-page advertisements. Clearly the solution to declaning newspaper ad revenues in India will come from how we tackle our digital fake news crisis. pic.twitter.com/3h5XyJeMIr
