Negara-negara tersebut, seperti dijelaskan dalam siaran pers Kementerian Komunikasi dan Informatika yang dirilis pada Senin (21/1), sepakat menekan penyebaran hoaks.


Semestinya langkah positif untuk menekan berita negatif itu tidak sebatas dilakukan dengan WhatsApp.

Salah satu caranya, yaitu dengan membatasi jumlah terusan (forward) pesan pengguna.

Langkah itu telah dibahas sejak kuartal 3/2018. Uji coba dalam format beta telah dilakukan sejak dua bulan terakhir.

Menindaklanjuti pembahasan itu, Vice President Public Policy and Communications WhatsApp Inc Victoria Grand dan Menteri Kominfo Rudiantara bertemu di kantor Kementerian, Senin sore.

Sejak diberlakukan, pengguna WhatsApp hanya bisa meneruskan sebuah pesan maksimal ke lima kontak. Menteri Rudi mengapresiasi langkah WhatsApp dalam membantu mengurangi penyebaran kabar bohong tersebut.


Namun demikian, semestinya langkah positif untuk menekan berita negatif itu tidak sebatas dilakukan dengan WhatsApp. Platform jejaring sosial seperti Facebook, Twitter, dan Instagram tak kalah ramai digunakan untuk menyebarkan hoaks.●
