ShareChat Bans 50000 Users For Posting Fake News, Illegal Content

Home-grown social media site, ShareChat, has banned more than 50,000 profiles in an effort to weed out fake news, hate speech and pornographic content from its platform.

The development comes after a Hindustan Times investigation last November found an abundance of "blatant lies to partially true polarizing content to violent hate speech" on the regional-language social media platform that claims to serve over 50 million registered users in 14 Indian languages.

In a media statement confirming the purge, ShareChat CEO, Farid Ahsan, said: "We have a robust set of guidelines that users adhere to. In case of offense, we take actions. Repeat offenders are blocked".
