A friend of mine in Facebook added me in a Group chat and how I hated it. It will give you tons of notifications and it's annoying. Since I don't want to disappoint her. I have no choice but to live up to this annoying thing for the mean time and hopefully I will gain confidence to leave this Group chat. If you are in this case, will you disappoint a friend? Photo is mine, taken from the lively city of Davao.

We only use group chats when it's absolutely necessary, or we just talk on a status, depending on what the topic is (as not everything needs to be a status). You could always write your friendly and kindly tell her that you're getting a lot of notifications and may have to leave the group chat, but she can always chat with you in a separate message if she wants. Most people are understanding of that sort of thing, especially when it comes to getting a lot of notifications.

I agree. I message her and ask to remove me to the Group chat. I told her me and the boyfriend are not interested for another investment scheme. I feel sorry because she wants me to join but it is not our priority at the moment. She said she understand.

@JustBhem Aw, see, a lot of people are understanding of it. :) I think most only get upset if the other person is rude about it, but you were nice about it, and she understood.

@tammys85 Yes. It is better to reason out and be honest about it.

They are so annoying and go on for too long. I leave the discussions.

@JustBhem Me, too, especially when they live in different time zones and wake you up in the middle of the night! Lol!

My friend added me to my primary school group chat and it was really annoying. There's hundreds of notification per day. I muted it but it still annoying. It's like they have nothing to do but chat. I left the group. My cousin who was also in the group asked me why and I told I just need to. The admin wasn't pleased by my answer and up to this day, she didn't talk to me. Well I don't mind.

As we expected their reaction would be. But it is better to be honest right, that pretending we like it when obviously it give us a hard time.

Its annoying. In my case I let it pass me by for a few days until some people starts to leave and then I leave too. Nothing I can do about it. I can't relate and I'm not really interested. My friend will have to understand that its just not my cup of tea. Oh and before I leave I always message my friend first and tell my intention for leaving.

If you don't like it - you don't like it.

Even though I don't like it, I'm still on it. Sigh.

I would just delete most of the alerts and contribute now and then. The band leader in one of the bands I'm in (the one shown in my latest post) uses "group chat" all the time and it does get annoying. I just contribute when I feel like it.
