Facebook Messenger has imposed a limit on the message forwarding process on its platform to prevent the dissemination of fake news on the lines of WhatsApp. Now you can forward one message to only 5 people and groups at a time. In the year 2018, Facebook brought a similar forwarding limit for WhatsApp in India, which was also expanded in the global market in January last year. However, in April, WhatsApp changed the rules for forwarding messages and announced that now users can forward forwarded messages on a single chat at a time. Apart from this, the Messenger app has also recently brought a new privacy feature for iOS devices.
Since the forwarding limit in Messenger, you will now be able to forward any message to only five people and groups at a time. If you try to add more than five people to your forward list, the app will show you a notification that says “forwarding limit reached.”
