When I first downloaded WhatsApp, I initially couldn’t see how it would benefit me. I already had Facebook and Twitter, so why would I need this? However, as I began using it for private chats with family members, it very quickly grew on me.
If you don’t know much about WhatsApp, let me tell you a little bit about it. It’s an app that allows you to talk privately to individuals and/or groups of people. It’s great for people like me – I have a number of different friends’ groups set up on it plus one for my immediate family.
I share pics of the kids and my animals, chat about various things and organise meet-ups. Last week, I shared pics and my views on my trip to Austria to visit a friend. My mobile isn’t set up to work abroad – I don’t go abroad enough to need it – so I kept in touch with family and friends via WhatsApp. I let them know I had arrived safely, shared pics of places I had seen and kept in touch with the latest family/friends news.
‘But you can do all that on Facebook’ I hear you cry. You can, but WhatsApp somehow feels more private plus you can talk to a number of people in the same conversation in real time.
Anyway, what’s your views on WhatsApp?
