  • First world countries might think, whatsapp is not responsible. But, in developing countries, where literacy rate is very low, people do not understand the difference between official and doctored images and mesages. There is no authority to fact check. All you need is on fake news And a few shares. After that it will spread like a wildfire. Also, FB is doing a very bad job of acting on report or complains. Almost no groups/pages which have been proven to be in the favour of violence/lynching/abusing have been banned. It is known that Government has its own “IT cell” which propagates its fake news and doctored images to further cause a rift between communities to stay in power.

    These are developing countries. Things work differently here. Do not expect people to follow same mentality as the theory of your books.

  • I mean, that isn’t facebook’s fault. That comes down to the people falling for shit.
    Maybe if the people were better educated instead of generally having to work from a very young age this wouldn’t be happening.

  • Blame your ignorant people not Facebook. Gandhi once said the biggest threat to India’s independence is not Great Britain but the Indian people’s ignorance.

  • Yeah sure. Because the mob could not adapt fast enough to the technology, let’s hold the tech responsible why don’t we?

  • Millions of people are accessing the Internet as noobs. Gov has to perform campaigns to teach people how to verify news and how to apply logic. Those are very helpful skills in life, not only in Internet
