"Numbers are not important to me via WhatsApp ..."
"You’re just talking to your close friends, that’s it. It’s not for likes or anything."
"One thing I’ve realised is, it’s for your family and close friends but most people use it as an outlet “I’m not okay” to express themselves. People would rather post on their status how they feel instead of inboxing someone and that’s how they express themselves. Some use Twitter."
"Most people that see your WhatsApp statuses are people close to you. Other social media platforms are full of fake people hence the responses are not the same..."
"My read receipts are off, I have no idea who watches my statuses until the occasional comment on it. Also, I don't receive that many responses, there's probably a handful of people I talk to."
