    Can’t see the benefit of a WhatsApp group over a forum. Just imagine every different subject thread we have here combined into one feed! As it is I am a member of a suburb (supposedly security) WhatsApp group and that has to be on permanent mute, with childish or ill informed gibberish being posted.

    Here I can choose which threads to watch, which new ones to open and most importantly, search for past advice very easily.

    Yes a whatsapp group can never replace a forum where you can search for old threads, advice etc. The problem is the people come to a forum everyday to see the "kakpraat", the handchecks, anything new.
    Now if most of this not so important stuff happen on whatsapp groups, then less and less will happen on the forum and other people will come read the forum less frequent.
    Its just my opinion, I could not care less, I can " kakpraat" the whole day, so ad me to a whatsapp group. Danie's Gooiwolke whatsapp group, they invited me to is a bit boring, they only post once every few days something, and then its normally a naked man or something, not my cup of tea(bag) :-D

    Exactly. APSA is dead because of that. Also I dislike WhatsApp chat groups because people get out of hand and don't stick to the topic. There was this fish keeping group I was on and right on the mark on Friday evenings, some drunk guys high on something, talking a bunch of nonsense. Admins did nothing about it so I left. I just had enough if it.

    And here I though WhatsApp has end to end encryption. So does this mean WhatsApp can see everything and spy on our conversations.

    Just one more reason to consider killing all my social media account that are owned by Facebook i.e FB, Instagram and now WhatsApp

    @Asterix You're so right about the gibberish on security Whatsapp groups. I was the Admin & Co-ordinator of one of our Neighbourhood Watch groups until a few weeks ago, when I'd had enough and stepped down. The final straw was a message from someone asking me who are the owners of the dogs which were in the street outside my house. How the hell must I know? And why ask me? Then when I wrapped him over the knuckles and said that posts to the group should only be about security-related incidents, he said the message wasn't intended for me. But it had my name on it. Go figure.

    It's always the little things which are the final straw, aren't they?

    I'm also under the impression that the end to end encryption keeps our chats private as per this info supplied by the app.

    Or does this not apply in groups?

    @GSM500 the USA spies on everything and they have been on Facebooks case for the longest time about user privacy etc. so I reckon the US Government in the public eye is telling Facebook and other owned Apps user privacy must be protected but behind closed doors they are working together to spy on everything and everyone.

    How else do you explain them being able to identify who is breaking there US laws and how can one countries laws be forced on users from another country...WTF!
