This would remind us every month to stop sharing forward messages on above mentioned day. On this day, we send only Private Messages that are of real important to everyone. (It is not compulsory though, just a fancy idea)

I hope Few groups might already be following this as we read it. This day can even be extended to Facebook Timeline messages Sharing and other social media and chat Messengers.

WhatsApp Messages – More Thoughts

We tend to give more importance when it is a Private Text Message from a Friend. That makes us to feel that we are  important to the person sending us a message and improves the bonding. On other hand, when the same person is sending message in a Group Chat it skips our attention.

It is as simple as a person talking to us in a Telephone Vs the same person is delivering a Public speech. In Email systems, we have Spam or Junk Email filters to avoid unwanted mails. But in messengers or Facebook, we don’t have such automatic filtering yet. It resides in our hands to stop it by ourselves.

Except for Twitter, none of the Social media platforms like Facebook, Quora, Google Plus or any chat messenger like Hike, Wechat, Telegram, Kik etc., has a limitation in number of characters for Texting. Thats why it is able to gain popularity with Broadcast or Group messages. Other systems don’t have a limitation in Message size. Do you get it? If there is a limitation, it is more fun.
