WhatsApp Hoax messages in India

How to fight against Chain Messages in Whatsapp?

Everyday without any exception we daily receive many chain messages in groups of Whatsapp

And those messages are made very cunningly to be-fool users, and drive them to send to others, and mathematical in group of fifty people five are enough who are ready to forward chain messages and it works great
1
5
25
125
625
3125
15625
78125
390625
1953125
9765625 (One Crore or 10 Millions approx)
It simply means that if one person send one chain message to just 5 people ( who are ready to forward it) then in just ten steps it can reach to 10 millions people and in Indian there are hardly 20 million people have Whatsapp and you easily can get more than 5 fools, so in actual practice, less than 10 steps are required to send chain message to all possible users of whatsapp.
There are many reasons to do this activity, some are purely related to marketing and the way message design is psychological aspects of people
For example
we used to get message that Whatsapp going to be chargeable from some coming particular date and by sending it to just 10 people you can get blue icon which save you to be charged and people simply feel that it;s easy way to save money , so send it to ten people, and it's just our psychological aspects to our own save money ( may ready to disturb others for it.)

We used to get some message like Blood Donation, Child lost, Whatsapp will pay to some Needy person or any like that which make us feel proud by sending it to all, as psychological  we want to help others specially in which we have nothing to pay and also not much time consume, so what's other better way than sending message.

We also get God oriented message in which fear factor of human is used, as most Humans have some inner fear, and many of us not want to take risk of not sending God oriented message.
and this way or other, many people get bound to send chain message,
But main thing is how to fight against this stupidity
and there are some easy way
1. First do not ignore any chain message, as many of us just ignore and even then in a few steps it spreads to millions.
2. If you get message individually, then just reply back with LOL, Ha ha, Or You still believe in such message, as by this sender of  chain message will understand futility of message
3. If you get message in a Group, then you must ask three to four logical questions about chain message by which sender of message can understand the stupidity done by him, but you must careful while asking these questions, as you must not hurt dignity of some person and you have to teach others by some civilized way
here are some sample questions

For Paid issues of Whatsapp (in which icon turns Blue)
Q1. Do u get Blue Icon after sending it to us?
Q2. If we send to 20 people, then we get some extra benefits or not
Q3. We have to pay every message of whatsapp in dollar or in our local currency

So only way is to fight back, ask questions and don't ignore

Thanks

Everyday we come across to some chain sms of God oriented,
after reading so many of these kinda message we can come to conclusion that it's part of ancient psychology to get God grace by easy ways,
like bathing in river can abolish all sins,
and not only sins of this birth but of many previous births,
like going to pilgrimage ,
and even people used to have their kids name on name on some god, as by calling kid name, God is stupid enough to count it on account of His name,
and now days these kinda psyche people start making and spreading message on whatsapp,
in which they confirm that by sending this particular sms to eleven or some other number of people you will get benefited
and if not, God will harm you,
as God has no work, but counting whatsapp messages,
 no karma theory is needed, just forward sms and enjoy God grace,
and not only less educated but well educated people are helping these messages to spread to million of people,
 some people not dare to read these sms, they just ignore or delete,
as they are almost afraid that if they read it then they will get bound to forward sms,
 as they also not brave enough to condemn that kinda activity,
 so whenever you get that kinda sms, read it word to word,
 and easily you get many logical errors in that,
and then you must ask five to ten questions about that particular sms to its sender,
so sender feel and understand the futility, falsehood and stupidity of chain sms,
 thanks

Whenever you heard, This News on That Channel, then instead of forwarding it without confirming it, try to make sure about it. If there is TV available then simply you can watch that channel to verify news, If TV is not available then try  http://realinfo.tv/index.php?page=TV on your pc to see Tv Channels online.

Now days Whatsapp is acting as tool to spread rumours, and as there is large number of people in one group, so it's very possible to have 5-6 persons who just do not care to verify anything before forwarding. Admin of group is needed to identify those people and need to guide them and if counseling not works then better idea is to remove them. 

Thanks

WhatsApp is going to cost us money soon. The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.
