How many of you remember the days of online chat rooms? There was a room for every topic and interest. With an internet connection, you would never be bored. Obviously that era passed – which is super sad for some of us. It was a great way to pass time while connecting with people of same interests.
Where am I going with this? Well, I finally got my first leave in so many years of non-stop working. I actually made a decision to completely disconnect from both the official work and all my other side hustle tasks. The day started off well, I got some time to really watch and enjoy a movie at home and when I was done, I found myself getting bored in the afternoon. A couple of times, I literally found myself trying to check and reply my emails.
This got me wondering, are there specific topic WhatsApp groups, whether private or public, that are your spend time on, and what are their terms and conditions? To get this started, I decided to make a post where I will list some of the groups I know or I am a member of.
