WhatsApp …. Heard this word … of-course you all do :). When I first heard about WhatsApp I got confused with “What’s up” or rather “Wass up”. When I was in US in 2005 I use to hear these words almost from everyone. It rather means “How you doing?” and it’s a way of greeting.
But now a days WhatsApp means something different. Everyone starting from age group of 10 years till 60+ years, all are saying I am on WhatsApp … r u also on WhatsApp …. I don’t think the company CEO must have ever thought that this application will penetrate so deep inside everyone. This is one of the highest downloaded application till now on any platform (iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Nokia, Symbian and Windows Phone). WhatsApp icon will be found in almost all the mobile users. In fact people subscribe to internet so that they can use WhatsApp in their phone.
WhatsApp was developed so that users between BlackBerry and iPhone or Android users can cross chat with each other. And now this app has killed all other older ways of chat or communication like SMS, yahoo chat or gtalk, or BBM. There is no age bar to use WhatsApp. Even oldies are seen using WhatsApp, which probably they have learnt from their children or grand children. It has rather now days become a timepass app. Lots of jokes, pics are shared by creating groups. People are just seen chatting endlessly on WhatsApp. One can hear phones beeping continuously in office and many offices have now days banned using WhatsApp during office hours. By forwarding jokes and pics it gives pleasure and fun to many but at times it also creates misunderstanding between some too. People express their love to their loved ones on WhasApp and at times break up also with them on WhatsApp only. It allows you to keep intouch with all your friends, colleagues and even family members too. It has the facility to create groups and people names it like “School Friends”, “College Friends”, “Family”, “Train Friends”, “Building Friends” and the list is endless …
WhatsApp has become addiction to most of them instead of being just a communication window. One checks his/her mobile incase it does not beep after every few mins and gets worried why no messages on WhatsApp? As I mentioned earlier sometimes its fun to keep intouch with all but at times it is irritating when one is busy in some work and your mobile keeps on beeping with new messages and also eating up your phone battery .
The above views are totally my thoughts and there is no resemblance of anyone. I am a chat-ohlic and you will find me Online most of the time in WhatsApp from the time I get up till I goto bed.
How about you all??? Please do drop in your views …..
