WhatsApp Takes Necessary Actions to Fight Fake Factories

WhatsApp Takes Necessary Actions to Fight Fake Factories

Have you seen the “typing” text that pops up when you wait for the other person to type and finish the message in WhatsApp? Well, you are not the only one seeing it, a computer that ultra-high-tech at WhatsApp is also observing as you tap your fingers on keyboards. This device is mainly used to differentiate between humans and bots. Many companies and marketers are using WhatsApp as a platform where they can market using bots. Multiple messages are sent to various groups and people using these bots. 

Says Carl Woog who is the head of communications at WhatsApp says that fighting automation and bulk messaging is one of the biggest challenges that the company is facing at the present time. One of many key indicators is typing pattern that helps WhatsApp to detect individual, organic messages.  This has caused mob lynching, fake news, mongering and more within the WhatsApp vertical. WhatsApp is still being blamed for this but it can’t be helped since WhatsApp is unable to stonewall this problem. Also, the increasing pressure from the Indian government has caused a lot of trouble for WhatsApp. Maybe this is why WhatsApp has taken this decision and only time will tell how events turn out in the future.
