The messaging platform owned by Facebook has been implementing several new means to curb the spread of misinformation. One such step is the addition of the 'Frequently Forwarded Label'. Notably, this is an extension of the 'Forwarded' label rolled out by the company last year.

Initially, this feature was first spotted in a beta version of WhatsApp earlier this year. Now, the company has started rolling out the feature with the latest update of the app for all users. Not only at the receiving end but also while sending, the users will receive a notice in the form of a double arrow icon showing that they are forwarding a message.

How Will It Be Useful?

With this new feature that shows the Frequently Forwarded label on messages, when you receive a message, you can get to know that it has been forwarded more than five times. Also, long messages will be truncated as an indication. This is one way to understand that the message could be a spam that has been in circulation by many users. And, you can refrain from sending the message to your contacts, thereby curbing the spread of fake information.
