Hey guys I'm gonna make a whatsapp group for all especially for noobs and beginners so if you want to join my group message me to


Follow this link to join my WhatsApp group: https://chat.whatsapp.com/7F2gXoYBsFHCQP5pfuBnyC

You messed up the link tag. Here it is clickable:
https://chat.whatsapp.com/7F2gXoYBsFHCQP5pfuBnyC
So, I don't have any experience with whatsapp. Is this so people can discuss Arduino via text messages on their phone?

Krishnawa

Yeah exactly you can ask doubt and you can also share your thoughts and experience through video or photo or by texting

If you are as successful as this forum you will get 2000++ messages a day, but uncategorized. Even at 100 msg per day you will get lost and annoyed by the lack of separate threads. Add to that the trolls, the spammers and the jokers and the practical value will drop to zero.

besides: I do not want to share my phonenumber with who knows who?
Furthermore: If I would get a solution through whatsapp it is cumbersome to copy it to my IDE.

So three imho strong arguments why whatsapp is utterly unsuitable.


But I do not want to be negative.

Can you give me 5 reasons why a whatsappgroup is a good idea.

(I can think of max 3 weak arguments but I want to hear yours)

This is such a electronics group , please see the discussion going on and don't think the whatsapp can't do such thing..


Krishnawa

If you see the screen shots , what you think about it.I feel better I maximum use the social media to gain my knowledge, it is not an experiment , It is proved that the whatsapp can do this because I'm one of the member of above whatsapp group and I believe it can do that. I've no more to say

I'm sorry I could not get the 5 reasons from you, and I wish you success with your whatsapp group.

Ok sir I don't have 5 reason , now what I want to do ?

robtillaart

Ok sir I don't have 5 reason , now what I want to do ?
Just go on with your whats app group (WAG) and make a success of it.

I only asked for 5 reasons as despite my efforts I cannot see it as a good idea.
but that is just my opinion, not a fact.

So if you could help me and give me a few reasons why it will work,
maybe I could understand your enthousiasm better.

I have looked at the screenshots and although they show that you can share a lot of info in a WAG,
they did not convince me that it will work to discuss more than a dozen topics per day.

But as I said make a success of it and proof that my opinion is wrong.

Thanks sir, why I make a group for noobs means. I'm also a noob, same level of people can discuss their problem and solve finally, for that I want some more people to active in that group and I have support of some experience person in ardiuno they can solve the problem
Until we can't solve the problem

This is the basic idea

Sir if joined my group that can help us (noobs)

Thanks☺️,

pert

If you want support from experienced people then use the suitable platforms where those people are, Arduino Forum and Arduino Stack Exchange. If you only want to socialize and get spammed then feel free to use the unsuitable platforms that experienced people are probably not going to waste their time with, such as Facebook and Whatsapp groups.

You need to understand the strengths of each platform and take advantage of those strengths rather than try to use the platform for something it's not well suited for. Whatsapp is good for free text messaging. It's not good for sharing code and having in-depth discussions of complex topics.

Krishnawa

I think you are right,how to delete this post sir?☺️
