10 rules of Whatsapp chats that must be respected

Please.

1. You just can’t add complete randomers to close knit group chats

A recipe for disaster, coupled with an overwhelming sense of awkwardness.

2. Send one solid chunk of message instead of a string of poxy single words ffs

Writing

like

this

*notifications explode*

3. If you must dive out of a chat unannounced, try to do it before you’ve actually seen the message

It’s just Whatsapp etiquette.

4. And don’t accidentally open a convo that has its notification sitting there if you’re actively avoiding it

Your Whatsapp game needs to be strong if you want to ignore messages for days. Those blue ticks will get you if not.

5. Never, ever use the platform of a group chat to engage in a one on one with somebody for AGES

Not group chat material, lads.

6. Don’t leave a group chat unannounced – that’s what the glorious mute button is for

Friendships have died over unexplained exiting of groups.

7. If you’re lurking in a group chat and ‘seeing’ every message, occasionally respond with *something* to remove the stalker vibe that inevitably develops

8. Leaving a voice message in group chats should be used judiciously and not for one second bursts of random noise

The curiosity will get the better of everyone in the group, and the noise will be listened to.

9. Jamming up everyone in the group’s gallery with similar photos is not advised

10. And finally… appearing online, seeing the message, starting to type and then abandoning the whole damn conversation should be punishable by law

Nooooo.
