What initiated as a user 2.0 version soon gained momentum. Their immediate and positive response to the customers’ concerns about rumors of the leak in privacy element as early as 2009 to the latest upheaval of complaints about the WhatsApp Crash for a day on May 3rd, 2017 contributed to the growth in popularity.

WhatsApp is coming out with…

  • Options to format writing like making bold, in italics etc. with a tap and hold which will soon be in your hand.
  • It is stated that soon the change in number will be notified to all in the contact list automatically, once the user changes the number without the hassle of intimating all or looking for old contacts.
  • Messages once sent will soon have the options to be deleted or revoked before received or read by the receiver.
  • UPI or unified payment interface provided by National Payment Corporation of India enabling fund transfer from bank to bank and to mobile is said to be the integration plans of this heart-throbbing app.

Birds of the same feather flock together – WhatsApp has made connecting so easy that chatting has become a passion among youth and also among people of other age groups. Unlike other social media networks, entering and exiting a group is an exciting event, prompted by a notification announcing all about the act.

Of course, not all is fair in WhatsApp –The mute option is open for the user to shut a group or an individual chat for days, weeks and even a year.

No ads, please –With the largest user-base in contrast to other apps, WhatsApp still stands with the basic ethic of not messaging from their end or promoting any advertisements for returns. That could be one of the reasons why people still prefer this app. The service provider does not interfere with any chats or activities going on in the app. It indeed has a sublime presence of completely dormant character making the users hardly feel the presence of a third-party among their chats.

Perfectly secured – Fully secured with verification through personalized passcodes pin is an essential feature of the chat.

That is not the end but just the beginning of exploring a small venture which turned out to be the most alarming creation of the current decade. It won’t be long when the app will be empowered to handle the smallest daily chores to the highest technical strategies.

In an era of digitalization, where AI reigns in the realm of business, politics, and culture, WhatsApp is sure to take up the major part of our lives. Now we are indulgent in it with the sole motive to chat and share but they are anticipated to come up with more intrinsic features to sweep you off-your-feet.

Today if this 76MB app consumes 3 hours of your total day, how much more will it consume when it comes up with all the special additions and anticipation becomes reality?

WhatsApp Tutorial

by Janice Wald

How you can promote your blog posts using WhatsApp

  1. Go to
  2. Click the kind of device you’ll be using. Your choices are Android, iPhone, PC, or Windows. I clicked Windows since I anticipate wanting to use the app to send my blog posts on the computer. However, the instructions explained the app still must be installed on your phone. To download on your phone, the instructions say to click this link: However, I went to the App Store on my iPhone to download the app. Easy.
  3. Decide whether you want to let WhatsApp access your contacts.
  4. If you are going to use WhatsApp on your phone, you will need to scan the code you see on the screen once download begins.
  5. On your phone, enter your phone number when prompted.
  6. Enter the code you are texted.
  7. I skipped the “Restore from iCloud” option.
  8. I entered my name and chose a photo. You can also choose to let WhatsApp use your Facebook info.
  9. You will be able to see your contacts. Those already using WhatsApp are indicated. This is important since you can only share your blog post links or other information with people who already have the app. The app also tells you when the person was last active so you know if they use the app often. There is no point in sending people your links this way if they aren’t going to open the app.
  10. I was immediately able to create groups. Do you have bloggers in your contacts? Create a group so you can send them the links you think they’d be interested in. Your other contacts may not be interested and feel you’re spamming. If none of your contacts are using WhatsApp, don’t worry. You are able to invite them.
  11. Click “Start messaging.”
  12. Click someone (or a group) you think would be interested in your article. You can send them a document or a link with a blurb about your post. When I chose “document,” I saw an option to open my iCloud drive. If you want to send docs, make sure they are saved in your iCloud drive first. Instead, on my phone, using my WordPress app, I went to WP/Admin and copied a link to an article.
  13. I went to WhatsApp, selected a contact I thought would be interested in my post and sent it to her. Remember, you can send to groups to save the time it would take sending to individuals.

What is the WhatsApp used for?

  1. Hugh Roberts

    I’ve seen the WhatsApp sharing button and have it on my blog, but not yet seen anyone using it. I guess that’s down to not knowing how to use it. Your post is very helpful, Janice. I’ll give it a try and see how I get on.

    • Janice Wald

      Thanks Hugh for the compliments on my post. I just added the sharing button as I prepared this article. It will be interesting to see if I get traffic from it.

  2. Carol A Cassara

    I find text promotions intrusive and super-annoying and don’t think I will use them at this stage. Perhaps when it becomes more mainstream.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Carol,
      Since I saw WhatsApp as a social share button, I figured I should let bloggers know about it. I like to write about things that aren’t mainstream yet so people learn new information here. Thanks for your comments.

  3. Little Miss Menopause

    Very interesting. I am not sure I understand this fully so I will reread. (My menopausal challenged mind, not your writing!) But in my stats page under “referrers” I constantly find WhatsApp as an entity that is listed. Sometimes on a daily basis. “What’s up” with that?? Lol. I’m not on there, that I know of? Thanks for writing this, Janice!

    • Little Miss Menopause

      Ps. It’s only a matter of time before the same app is available for millenials but it will be called “S’up?”

      • Janice Wald

        Hi again,
        When I saw this comment come in, I smiled. Humor bloggers leave the FUNNIEST comments. Seriously, too funny.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Stephanie,
      You asked how you could be getting WhatsApp traffic if you’re not promoting on there. Easy! Other people are promoting your links there! Cool! Exciting! Thanks for commenting. Great to see you.

    Driving traffic to your site from some additional sources is always welcoming. Before this I really did not have idea about this method.

    Now, WhatsApp is emerging as a great tool for the website owners and bloggers.

    I really appreciate your efforts for extensively explaining this topic here.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Samandar,
      I just came from your site. I see you and I are like-minded bloggers. I tweeted your Online Presence for Marketers article and followed you on Twitter.
      I agree. Since WhatsApp is emerging as a great tool for bloggers and website owners, I thought I’d blog about it.

      Great to see you here. I’m glad you found the WhatsApp article interesting. I am glad I could open your mind to new uses for the app.

  10. Steven Jude

    This is a great tip. However, Whatsapp is not a scalable option and your time would be better spent if you focus on SEO, SMM, or paid media.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Steven,
      Thanks for contributing to the discussion. I spend a lot of time focusing on SEO. The other two much less. I am still working outside the home, so marketing hasn’t been a priority so far. Thanks for writing.
