6 RULES OF CREATING A WHATSAPP GROUP....
Often times I have observed a nauseating trend of people creating a whatsapp group,proceeding to add people to this groups, then they suddenly go blank, worst still, some would starting threatening to remove people from such groups, who cares??
1. NEVER CREATE A GROUP WITHOUT A SET OBJECTIVE:
Yes, the law of attraction is applicable in this scenario, it's your passion and vibrancy that will set the ball rolling in such groups.
Is your objective to re-connect with old classmates, to talk about love and relationship, leadership and internship e.t.c. Let the purpose be defined, don't just create a whatsapp group and go blank, it is offensive....
2. BRIEF LIKELY PARTICIPANTS BEFORE ADDING THEM...
Yeah, how would you feel to wake up one morning only to start receiving notifications from a group you know nothing of, annoying, right?
Please take your time to chat up potential participants about adding them to a particular group, explaining briefly the motive behind such group, then take time to hear them out. Some will consent to your invite, while others will turn down your request, don't feel bad, reason along with them as some might have issues with their battery afterall...
3..BE DEMOCRATIC.
I have belonged to some groups in the past where the moderator was calling the shots like the Idi Amin of Uganda, with time people would start feeling intimidated and poooah!!! the group goes into extinction.
Be democratic enough to appoint co-moderators, keep decisions open and let the voice of the major participants prevail while arriving at a conclusion...
4. NEVER REMOVE A MEMBER AND ALWAYS CHAT UP AN ABUSIVE MEMBER BEFORE DELETING HIM/HER...
Naturally someone like me love observing on the sidelines before making incursions into discussions and when I make contributions, the applausometer turns red..
A participant might not be able to contribute due to busy schedules or phone issues but you might be suprised that later on they would make the best contribution when they finally wake up from their slumber..
Change is the only constant factor in life, chat up with a cyber bully often on the possibility of him /her ammending his/her ways before deleting him/her..
Getting deleted can be quiet hurting at times...
5. BE INNOVATIVE AND DON'T FORCE EXITING MEMBERS..
Bring in new ideas to stir up members when it seems the room is getting cold and never force exiting members to stay by re adding them over and over.
6..HAVE DISCUSSION PERIODS
Damn'it, I hate my phone beeping at work or my battery getting drained from chat groups..
Mr Moderator Please 8pm to 10pm is good hour range to keep the room active, let there be guidelines...
