Every Whatsapp group contains someone desperate to escape it
EVERY Whatsapp group chat contains at least one person who dreams of escaping it, researchers have found.
No matter what the group’s subject or participants, from ‘Ladz Bantz’ to ‘FAMILY’, analysts found there is always at least one member who winces whenever they hear the chime of a new message arriving.
Study participant Nathan Muir said: “My cousin added me to a group where she shares multiple pictures of her son every day. Like 12 a day.
“I’ve muted it but it’s always there, eating up storage and keeping me weirdly aware of the toilet training of a child I’ve met twice.”
Nikki Hollis agreed: “I’m in a group called ‘The Girls’ with friends from school. It started out fun but now it’s just online therapy for Sophie, who still does mad shit when she’s drunk.
“I wish I could leave it, but I don’t want to upset her. She had a really heavy weekend. Slept with her second cousin.”
A WhatsApp spokesman said: “Our business model is connecting you with people who you’ll come to hate. We’re currently valued at around $19 billion.”
