Ever since WhatsApp announced WhatsApp status feature to let users post content (including text, pictures and videos) that disappears after 24 hours, we have seen its popularity grow exponentially over the last one year or so. In fact, many users we know have even stopped updating their traditional WhatsApp status. WhatsApp is neither first nor the last platform to offer this kind of feature. This feature was first made popular by Snapchat.
Facebook took on the trend right after and implemented it on many of its apps such as Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. The reason lies within the core foundation of how the social media concept has evolved over the last few years. It instantly lets you be a part of a bigger trend, voice your opinion on the most relevant topic at the moment or simply give a tad bit more snazz to your personal status. While this is yet another way of getting users to stay hooked to their social media channels, it can be fun for the users too.
People don’t seem to bother much when it comes to posting WhatsApp status. For example, we have seen an interesting pattern where they can post anything in general. For example, people tend to share pictures and videos related to trending topics, festival greetings, random one-liners and much more as WhatsApp status than Instagram stories. That also kind of explains the reason why more people are searching for pictures and videos they can share across with their contacts in the form of WhatsApp status.
