web 2.0 bs, - Show more
thinking about it more thoroughly, reading/typing indicators added absolutely NOTHING than negative feelings to messaging.
typing indicators:- generally useless because you can't interrupt someone writing like with talking- "why did you take so long for an 'ok'???"
- if you turn them off, people ask you why- if you don't reply after reading, some people tend to take that the wrong way quickly
nothing of value, and a change in messaging culture.
show people if their messages weren't sent because of networking issues, but don't add stupid "checkmarks" that people interpret the wrong way and start weirdly questioning one another why they didn't reply whatsoever.
