Bring back the original WhatsApp !

This petition had 300 supporters

Lately WhatsApp released their latest update which contains a feature called 'My status'. It lets you post videos and photos as a part of your status which stays over your account for 24 hours. Well, sounds familiar?

This concept has already been implemented by Snapchat and lately Instagram as well. I feel due to this inclusion, WhatsApp has lost its exclusivity and originality. The regular textual based status option is also not available anymore. WhatsApp is famous for its free messaging feature,pretty much evident from its 1 Billion downloads, which lets people connect all over the world.

Even if the intention behind bringing in this feature is purely social it brings in lot of redundancy and lack of orginality. WhatsApp has become a daily part of our lives now. It does best what it does and that is, to connect people. Hence, I think this feature should be best left with the applications which have already implemented it so meticulously. 

We already love WhatsApp and no one in near future would start quitting WhatsApp as its an integral part of their lives now. It has a rich customer base which would go on increasing no matter what, but ultimately customer satisfaction is what it should strive for. 

Sign my petition if you think the original (previous version) Whatsapp is what you genuinely want.

Thank You
