WhatsApp channels: how they work
Unlike private chats, WhatsApp channels are a broadcasting, i.e. one-way, transmission tool. Users cannot reply to messages, nor share them with others, but only add, completely anonymously, a “reaction”. Following a channel will not reveal the users’ phone number to the channel’s administrators or to other users, respecting privacy
