@Glory1@Poppysmum@ComaChameleon I use WhatsApp on a daily basis and it's my main platform for communicating with my parents who are in a different country. Mostly one-to-one chat, but I do have a few group chats going on too. On WhatsApp are you able to mute group notifications one at a time or is it all or nothing?


You can mute it. But than you don't get the news... I have 131 unread notifications since 14 o'clock today - so in 8 hours. And thats what I mean.

My collegues were discussing a change in overtime and worktime (allegedly we are working not enough.... We have 48 hours a week plus 12 hours in top per month [plus 30 hours further training per year in our free time].... That's not enough, by far... *sarcasm).

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

Hmm... WhatsApp...

 

I don't realy classify WhatsApp as Social Media, in the same way Skype isn't in that category.  The lines do begin to blur, though.

 

I use WhatsApp - very handy for keeping a small family group in sync (provided they haven't uninstalled it from their phone to make way for more Spotify tracks or a bigger SnapChat store...Crazy). Does anyone consider group SMS as "social media"?

 

Thought not...

Use it for keeping in touch with school friends + jazz friends / musicians + animal things / cat groups particularly + funnies which I usually share + photography groups

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

There’s an interesting article about the addictive nature of social media, and we shouldn’t be surprised that it’s designed that way wink

It’s not a million miles away from what we see in community forums thinking

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

Thanks for the article @Anonymous makes interesting reading.

Thank God my only addictions are my games, my recordings, my films and box sets. Social media, especially FB and Twitter just don't interest me. I've real friends to talk to. And for online friends I stick to the O2 community 😊

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

I found it very sad. People who measure their self worth by the amount of likes they get on FB.....

Tragic really.

I too @Cleoriff find it sad that people brag about how many friends they have on Facebook

Not on any social media. I’ve tried them all at some point but they’re all much of a muchness. (I hate Facebook) 

 

I love the idea of instagram (pictures not words) but without a smartphone it’s pointless.

Snapchat is quite fun!
I'm not brave enough to put my ugly mug out there yet but seeing what is going off around the the world is a mixed bag of bizarre & just plain weird

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

I've never used Snapchat but Line is my preference as it's the number one social media outlet in Thailand. I have many friends who use that as well as Whatsapp which is gaining popularity over there.
