The creation of WhatsApp groups is necessary in university because it’s one of the most viable means of information dissemination among students. They do the job perfectly. However, they also become home to students with different behaviour and personalities. These are some of them:
The ones who send morning devotionals
You usually wake up to long messages from these students, and all they want to do is share the word of God with you and wish you a good day. Once they do this, their job is done and you won’t hear anything from there until the following day.
The ones who send jobs and internship opportunities
They are inactive for the most part. However, the moment they decide to remind everyone of their existence, they send a barrage of scholarships and job opportunities to the group, even though most of them do little to confirm the authenticity of these opportunities. It’s the thought that counts.
The ones who never have the timetable
They couldn’t be bothered to have the lecture timetable. They pop in to ask when/where classes are holding and which project/assignment is due. After they get the information they’re looking for, they crawl back into the hole they came out from.
The ones who mute the group
They don’t care about the group or whoever is in it. In fact, they don’t get new messages notifications because they have muted the group for one year.
The ones who never run out things to say
They are the ones who keep the group active. Also, they never run out of topics to discuss or thoughts to argue. They are the reasons everyone complains about data and turn media download off.
The ones who will leave the group immediately after graduation
They won’t hesitate to let everyone know that they don’t rate them. The moment it’s confirmed that they’re done with the school, they cut ties with everyone. They leave the group and don’t look back.
