Why leaving a WhatsApp group isn't that easy

23 January 2017 5:25 PM
Author and columnist Ndumiso Ngcobo talks about WhatsApp group chat etiquette and some of his personal experiences.

It's difficult to leave a WhatsApp group without being overwhelmed by guilt or hurting other people's feelings.

Writer and columnist Ndumiso Ngcobo says people take social media seriously and have different social pressures and expectations when it comes to WhatsApp.

Ngcobo says he uses the setting which allows him to mute notifications from group chats which tend to blow up his phone.

He talks about the different characters you encounter in WhatsApp group, including the organisers, the lurkers and the meme-sharers.

You cant be the skulker that never says anything. Now and then you say something funny or drop an emoji. There's pressure.

Ndumiso Ngcobo, Sunday Times Columnist and Author
