Whats-App Has 400 million users at India, but no fix 4 Its fake news problem #Ago_ByAugust 12, 2019
WhatsApp has also been actively banning accounts (over 2 million each month).
Did WhatsApp do anything about it?
“WhatsApp has failed to look at issues that are happening in countries like Bangladesh, India, and Myanmar where people do not have the maturity in terms of digital education, digital literacy, digital empowerment,” said Pratik Sinha, who runs Indian fact-checking platform Alt News and described the tipline as a PR effort.
“It was known that the 2019 elections will feature misinformation from all sides.
But what was done by WhatsApp to do anything about it?”
The massive spread of fake news and misinformation is caused by political parties and their allies for political and electoral gains almost at the level of industrial scale of manufacturing misinformation, according to the Digital Empowerment Foundation’s Manzar.
The measures that they took last year or putting in a forwarded tag or limiting people to 5 forwards have not had any visible effect,” he said.
In addition, studies reveal the number of internet users in India will reach 627 million in 2019 and the growth will be primarily led by the rapid adoption in rural sectors.
Researcher at the Department of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics and the co-author of “WhatsApp Vigilantes,” told Digital Trends that the top priority is to fight the “deadly consequences of disinformation in India.”
If their priority is to make money via digital payments, their priority should also be that the social fabric of the country is not completely destroyed because of misinformation being circulated on their platform,” said Sinha.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
