WhatsApp launches ‘Check the Facts’ campaign to educate users on how to fight misinformation 

Telugu super news,Delhi,November 28th, 2023: WhatsApp has launched an integrated safety campaign ‘Check the Facts’ in an effort to drive user-awareness around WhatsApp’s safety features and promote digital best practices that help prevent the spread of misinformation on the platform and empower people to take control of their messaging experience.

The month-long campaign highlights WhatsApp’s in-built product features and safety tools like block and report, forward labels that equip users to spot misinformation and prevent its spread further, and encourages people to verify information that sounds suspicious or inaccurate via fact-checking organizations on WhatsApp Channels. More details on the safety campaign can be found here: https://blog.whatsapp.com/check-the-facts 

While there is no single action that can help prevent the spread of misinformation and fake news online, WhatsApp’s ‘Check the Facts’ campaign serves as a simple safety guide to fight misinformation. 

1. Understand when a message is forwarded

WhatsApp has created a label for all forwarded messages and limits the number of times you can forward messages as a way to encourage users to reconsider before sharing. Paying careful attention to messages with “forward labels” also helps slow down the spread of rumours, viral messages, and fake news. For example, if a message has a double arrow icon and is labeled “forwarded many times,” it can only be forwarded to one chat at a time. If a message has a “forwarded label” you can forward it to up to five chats and only one group at a time. 

2. Block and report suspicious accounts

WhatsApp provides a simple way for users to block accounts and make reports to WhatsApp if they encounter problematic messages, including those spreading misinformation. If you receive a message from an unknown sender, WhatsApp provides users the option to block them, with additional details such as groups in common, along with safety tools if you need to take action.

3. Follow fact-checking organization on WhatsApp Channels for accurate information

WhatsApp encourages users to double-check information that sounds suspicious or inaccurate – this is key to preventing the spread of misinformation. WhatsApp has partnered with 10 independent fact-checking organizations that help users to verify information in 13 languages. People can follow dedicated fact-checking organizations on WhatsApp Channels to receive verified and accurate updates. The fact-checking channels available include: 

  1. Boom Fact-Check
  2. Fact Crescendo 
  3. Factly  
  4. India Today Fact Check 
  5. Newschecker 
  6. NewsMobile

No more morning goof ups with the all new Colgate MaxFresh

Telugu super news,Mumbai, 3 November, 2023:Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited, the market leader in Oral Care, introduces a refreshing and whimsical campaign that embraces the world of morning goof-ups. In a playful take on morning drowsiness, Colgate MaxFresh highlights the notion that when we’re feeling sleepy, we tend to deviate from our usual selves and commit amusing bloopers.

Anaswar Rajagopal, Director, Toothpaste (Family & Equity) Marketing at Colgate-Palmolive India, expressed the inspiration behind the campaign, stating, “It is a universal truth that you don’t feel like yourself if you are not fully awake. Consequently, during such moments, you find yourselves making silly mistakes like- boarding an elevator without pressing the desired floor button, locking the house door only to realise that the car keys are left behind, or sending a long email and missing out on the attachment! 

Colgate MaxFresh understands you and gets you ready for a goof up free morning. The toothpaste ‘instantly’ wakes you up, with a burst of intense freshness, setting the tone for a vibrant start. With this ad film, we wanted to create exaggerations of possible slip ups to drive home the message that brushing with Maxfresh gives you a jolt of morning freshness that makes you alert and wakeful.”

Ather energy sold 10,056 units in October’23, registering a 30% month-on-month growth

Telugu super news,National, 1st November, 2023:Ather energy, the renowned electric vehicle manufacturer sold 10,056 units in October’23, representing a 30% month-on-month growth. Ather, is making significant strides in expanding its reach and accessibility. Ather is set to revolutionize the electric scooter market with an impressive network of 166 Experience Centres spanning across 100 cities. Among its exciting offerings is the Ather 450S, hailed as one of India’s quickest and smartest scooters, available alongside the Ather 450X. These Experience Centres offer potential buyers the unique opportunity to test ride any Ather vehicle, helping them determine the ideal fit for their needs before making a purchase. Ather’s customer-centric approach and innovative products continue to propel it to the forefront of the EV industry.

Ather Energy has received approval from the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) for its recently developed indigenous charging connector. It is called the Light Electric Combined Charging System (LECCS) and can be used by two-, three-, and four-wheelers. Globally, this is the first-ever combined AC and DC charger, that has been developed in India. With the introduction of the LECCS, the eco-system could benefit from a large-scale adoption of electric vehicles. Additionally, independent charging operators, too, could benefit from this and more fast and slow charging stations could be made present across the country.

Commenting on this occasion, Ravneet Singh Phokela, Chief Business Officer, says,

“On the back of an enhanced product portfolio, we had a strong start to the festive season. We delivered 10,056 scooters to our customers, registering ~30% month-on-month growth. With Diwali just around the corner, we expect this positive momentum to continue. We continue to make strides in the charging infrastructure. Ather’s charging connector has been approved by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) as the nation’s first indigenously developed standard for light electric vehicles in strong step towards making India a global leader in LEVs. We also ventured into our first international market. We are all set to open our first Experience Centre in Nepal on November 5th. Ather has also reached another significant milestone in the domestic market with the launch in Jammu, further expanding our retail presence in India to a total of 150 Experience Centres.

Ather Energy announced plans for global expansion, to enter Nepal market in NovemberAther’s retail expansion to a market outside India, comes on the back of its runaway success in the domestic market, where its 450 Series is the undisputed leader in the premium two-wheeler electric vehicle (EV) segment with a 75% market share.  The plans to export the Ather 450X also comes at a time when Nepal is shifting towards more clean mobility options. A relatively smaller market than its larger neighbours like India and China, Nepal however presents a very promising proposition for companies like Ather to understand new markets in terms of product performance and acceptability.

Also, Ather Energy has partnered with top banks and NBFCs like IDFC First, Bajaj Finance, and Hero FinCorp to enhance accessibility to EVs. By offering flexible loan tenures of up to five years, the monthly EMIs for Ather electric scooters have become as low as Rs 2,999. This forward-thinking initiative aligns with the Indian government’s goal of achieving 30% electric vehicle penetration by 2030, making sustainable mobility a reality nationwide.
