Forgot to take a screenshot, but finally deleted my WhatsApp account earlier today.

Another social network that bites the dust for me during 2021, and the year hasn't finished yet.

To be fair, despite the privacy issues, the fact that I deleted my account has nothing to do with privacy.

It's just that I only bothered to catch up with chats maybe once or twice a month. I didn't even had notifications. And catching up = marking as read groups with hundreds of old messages.

So it wasn't useful for me, and I've been told that it wasn't useful for friends, since I was holding the blue check marks on their messages.
