WhatsApp: Addictive, Dangerous Read How To Overcome?

with 7 comments
WhatsApp is an incredible way of texting friends, family or whomever you want without any limitation and boundaries. It’s simple to use, has a great interface, offers conversation style messaging and CPU optimized.

I haven’t seen a single smartphone user without having WhatsApp installed in his android, iPhone or Windows phone. I saw everyone using it with great interested & dedication.

This app is free only for a year, but not to worry because the renewal changes so very less.

Keeping all the advantage of this app aside, this App is highly addictive. It creates a great impact on regular users and along with that it leaves a trace that becomes difficult to control and clear. Beside all the advantages the disadvantage is warned by professor of Psychology at the University of the Basque Country, Enrique EcheburĂșa.

WhatsApp 'Status' feature is so good that it creates a familiar environment. For Example: Neha is online but not yet responded, Ayan is always online and gives instant response, Arbaaz was last seen on 24/11/2012 at 2:00 AM, John status cannot be seen because he blocked me etc. These are the detail which creates a great impact on mind. Even if you are not close to your WhatsApp contact, just know enough to chat, still this virtual interaction has great impact than physical. Keep reading to explore more.

Footprints (Status) of WhatsApp is strong enough to fall in LOVE, Misunderstanding, Hatred and many other physiological response. If someone wants to use WhatsApp in irrational way, it is very dangerous tool to control mind and trace location. Besides the Native part, this service also has positive sides because it's free and great text based communication tool that support sharing of Multimedia like Photos, Videos, Voice Mail and Mp3. You can share your things from anywhere around the world, just internet needed.

You might have observed that in party or any sort of gathering, if any of your friend is long sitting in corner operating his cell phone. Well, this is another major issues of this addictive Messenger. The impacts is are so powerful that users left the real world interest, their entire emotion is restricted to App, they get happy or sad depending on the reply they get from other users. WhatsApp users has serious addiction issue, they are hypnotized and controlled by other users. They are so in to it that they cannot help theme self without constantly chatting, replying and sharing all the time, regardless of the scenario.

The loss of control, serious interference in everyday life (at school or at work) and a constant dependence are some of the symptoms to identify people who have gone from WhatsApp users of social networking or sick.

The impact are serious on regular day to day life (At School at Work), it offers a pleasure that gives you nothing but constant dependency, you will kept on reading status, replying sharing and if something goes out of proportion you will kept fixing is entire day, this way it steal away your productive work and you end up lost your precious time, days and years.

How To Cure This Addiction?

Instead of chatting all day, put time limit and take some time out or watch movies, do some outdoor chores, handout with neighbors and friends, engage yourself with some other work etc. This way you can avoid falling prey to addiction.

This addiction can leads to psychological problem, if someone experiencing it, it's recommended to take yourself off from WhatsApp for 2 to 3 month. But before returning make sure that you learn to use wisely without getting too much attached with your WhatsApp friends. Emotional attachment on WhatsApp could leads to serious mental disturbance because it lacks of physical (Face to face real life interaction) Communication limitation.

It's a Myth that such type of addiction is only effecting teenagers but also mature people with some weakness may get addicted.

According to psychologist a communication which has no face, strangely can be more effective. Psychologically, the impact and imagination goes with text. A good text can create huge impact and similarly an irrational text can be disaster. The text becomes the sole means of emotion, you can easily hide your actual feeling and trick people.

According to research conducted recently, it came out that between 80 to 90% of people connected to internet use WhatsApp and only 5% to 9% use it properly.
