Every group is different, yet the same. With the social media at its finest, you’ve probably encountered a cross-section of humanity with seemingly nothing in common, yet stereotypes do occur in every group - including your very own group chat.
Social media has become a hyperactive communication platform. With the creation of Facebook and Viber and the likes, group chats have become a well-known medium for announcements, event-planning, and yes, even sharing of stories or simply put, gossip-mongering.
With the popularity of group chat at its peak, let's identify the types of people (if not all) in your chat groups.
1. The leader
There's always that one person who instigates every kind of trouble for the group - and this one never seems to fail to invite the group and suggest what to do. The leader is the person who makes and initiate plans. They’re asking people strictly to
2. The distracted texter
Jumping off of the above, this is that one person who blurts out something really off topic , or shares something viral and trending from the net in turn changing the topic and leaving the current topic unfinished.
3. The novelist
This person who shares his or her stories in full detail, five paragraph essay format and plenty of unnecessary profanity to prove their anger. This person just can't seem to make it short - the perfect embodiment of a walking, talking blog site.
4. The seen lord
That person in the group chat that just reads the conversations but never responds. Every once in a while they will throw in a quick response, but for the most part they just let everyone else do the talking - SEEN-ZONED!
5. The clueless
This person is the ONE - the one that always seems to be lagging behind all the juicy gossip. 75 messages later, this person starts asking about all of the information that are available a few scrolls away. It's annoying because you have to fill him in with context.
6. The meme lover
This friend you have that responds to you with memes. This is the person that loves to text in what could be both the best and the worst thing imaginable - with MEMEs!
7. Sticker addict
There is always one chat friend that has probably forgotten how to use words because he responds to almost everything with emojis. This is the kind of person who never seems to know how to use words.
8. Gossip queen
This is the group's very own Gretchen Weiners whose hair is so big it's full of secrets. The gossip queen is the source of all juicy material. The gossip queen is usually the first to chat in the most random of circumstance.
Through all of this,group chats can be pretty hilarious and fun to be included in. However, when it’s 3 am and someone gets so busy doing whatever it is that they love to do, that’s when it gets annoying. So, which one are you?
