In a bid to curb the spread of fake news, Facebook has added a limit to forwarded messages on Messengers. Now, the users will not be able to forward messages to more than five people or groups at a time. Facebook had earlier rolled out the forwarding limit for WhatsApp that enabled users to forward messages to only one chat at a time.
