Whatsapp Freedom
« on: March 08, 2015, 03:36:12 PM »
When I installed Whatsapp, it was still small, and not many people were on it. I saw it as a tool to keep in touch with family and friends.

Over the past few months it has exploded in popularity, and I found myself reading over 1,000 messages per day (!), and decided to erase the app from my phone for a week (didn't erase my account), and see what happens. I must say that although the first two days I was having withdrawal symptoms, I actually started enjoying the freedom FROM whatsapp...

Today I deleted my account with Whatsapp.

It has been an enjoyable experience on Whatsapp, and an enjoyable experience without it...

What's the problem keeping the app just for personal messages and not joining any groups?

I'm very familiar with the yh,  but am part of one family group only,  which is great,  and don't use it for much else other than as a text message replacement.  Don't see the huge nisoyon
