  1. Last Seen at –

You may have read the forwards and jokes regarding this whatsapp feature. Interesting as it is, but it is also a basic reason for many to fight with their partners. Funny how people feel in-secured with such features.

“Why didn’t you call me last night?” “Your whatsapp shows last seen at 2.30 am”

  1. Message Read

When you send a message to people, you expect them to reply you back. The double tick feature of Whatsapp is the perfect evil feature for it. You can now see people reading your message but not having the courtesy of replying you back.

  1. Masking your Last Seen –

Well, if your Last Seen – feat didn’t cause you enough problems, the new masking feature introduced by the same Whatsapp can now instigate issues you never knew. This privacy setting allows you to mask your last seen feature, keeping you invisible only to make your friends and family doubt your whereabouts.

  1. Silly Emoticons

You send a proper message, what you receive from the other end are just emoticons. A laughing face, angry face, clapping, etc. Half of the time, it gets difficult understanding the new emoticons which keep getting introduced in short time intervals.


  1. Group Chats

How many groups do you have in your whatsapp or hike messenger? Your Everyday Friends… Girls group… Boys Ghetto… College reunion group, school friends, etc. etc. The list is Never Ending and so are the Notifications that keep ringing all through the day.
