Heres how to check fake news on WhatsApp

  • WhatsApp users can send messages, including images, video and text in five languages, which are English, Hindi, Telugu, Bengali and Malayalam to check that credibility of the source.
  • Social media giant Facebook Monday said it has removed 687 pages and accounts linked to individuals associated with an IT Cell of the Congress party as it cracks down on fake accounts and spam.
  • These accounts, it said, were part of coordinated networks and were removed not based on content or fake news but for "inauthentic behaviour" and for pushing spam.
  • Meanwhile, it's being reported that the telecom regulator Trai may go for a light-touch regulation for over-the-top (OTT) players such as Skype and WhatsApp.
