Forward mania syndrome - Forwarding of images and videos cause unwanted problems to receivers.

In the recent days, many of the WhatsApp users are suffering from "Forward mania syndrome". That means whenever they receive any message in their whatsapp inbox, (including personal messages), their fingers immediately jump to forward to all their contacts, whether it is relevant or irrelevant. They don't understand that they are causing lot of inconvenience to others, unknowingly.

I request all whatsapp users to avoid sending forwarded images and videos to any one, including me. These images and videos will get downloaded in the mobile and cause problems to mobile users. Without the knowledge of the sender and unknowingly every day the sender of such messages causes inconvenience to many mobile users. A survey reveals that more than 95% percent of receivers do not even see the photos and videos. They feel uncomfortable to receive such forwarded images and videos. This is also a wastage of bandwidth.

Everybody can use whatsapp chat or group to send his/her original messages for conversation. If needed they can send YouTube link with proper introduction in the original message. Also do not simply forward the videos, without mentioning about the relevance of such video.

You can share this message with everyone who is in the habit of forwarding everything to others.
