Trying To Be Invisible On Whatsapp. by Biglittlelois(f): 7:58am On Jan 22
I've been noticing a recent trend on whatsapp which more people are adopting day by day, mostly guys

The act of removing last seen and putting off read receipt, it is very rude and disrespectful, last seen can be excused, but you see that read receipt, how will someone know his/her chat has been read? Even if one gets a reply afterward without the ticks turning blue, It still doesn't speak well of whoever does that cos he/she will be seen in a negative kind of way, when the read receipt is on, the person will actually appreciate the fact that his/her chat has been read, then wait for a reply at anytime

Imagine doing that to an elderly person, my brother did it to my Dad(removing read receipt), old man thought his whatsapp had problem, when he explained it to him, my Dad gave him a hella lecture he can't forget in a hurry, then instructed him to put it back on


I actually don't chat with any of my contacts that has its read receipt off, once I notice it, I immediately tune out, I recently asked one why he turned off his own, he gave no tangible reason, I politely told him I won't chat him anymore

So has anyone had same experience? How do you feel about it? I'd like us to share thoughts on it.....

I hate that one, it is usually done for ulterior motives. Fear people who do that and people that don't put profile photo especially when you are in a relationship with them, e get why

My Gbwhat'sapp geng causing trouble..but seriously it is not your biz..it is not your privacy..plus I kind of like it..especially still viewing status or messages dat people delete...as 4 d reading..it helps when u accidentally open a message u are not ready to answer...Like mine 4 example..will only show u read when I respond...Human beings like taking things to personal..always looking for deeper meanings dat don't exist

This is exactly what I was discussing with someone, I was telling her that once I notice you don't have that blue tick on read message, I regard you as someone who's not straight forward and open. E no get how you won explain am

Your dad is wrong
Its a way to tell some people who think they're too big to view ur status update until u view theirs that u don't give a single Bleep.
I think I should also turn off my last seen too...I hate people monitoring me and being too critical cool

You are just like me ,I don't take anyone with read receipts or last seen off seriously and I really hate it.
I chat with just one person like that and it's because he is my money exchange guy,so i kind of excused him due to the nature of his job.
Any other fool won't be tolerated for no reason,
Some do it so they can check/see statuses without the owner of the status knowing they've seen it.
Weird,petty,jobless ,ambitionless,useless people with a lot of time in their hands in my opinion.

i started experiencing this lately. One of those girls made me abandon my whatsapp for a while this week. shes used almost every chatting opportunity to stylishly beg for money. but i prefer leaving the app than putting of my read receipt.
