WhatsApp has become THE mode of communication between family, friends and acquaintances spread across the world. Facebook, email and many other forms of communication have fallen to the way side.

But, as I have become part of an increasing number of groups, I have noted my propensity for reading and posting to these groups has gone down. In many cases, I simply open the group conversation and exit it immediately (just in order to clear the unread message count).

Propensity — nice word isn’t it?
