Whats app launched a new feature "forwards label" to identify the source of a forwarded message by the users. The Facebook owned whatsApp took an initiative to handle the ongoing debates on the misuse of social media platforms starting from today. whatsApp will indicate which message you receive have been forwarded to you. This extra context will help make one-on-one and group chats easier to follow, whatsApp said in its official blog. The launch of "forwarded label" by whatsApp took a preventive measure to help the users to determine whether the message has sent by the person or it is forwarded from other sources. As the source of the sent message could be identified by the users, the sender will think twice before forwarding any messages and this will help people to prevent the spread of rumours. Through this forwards label, whatsApp provides safety measures to the consumers and encourages people to think before forwarding messages.
