I don’t know that many people who have this feature turned on, and if you DO, you should be aware that people know when you have read their messages and aren’t responding. This would drive me absolutely bonkers. I prefer when people don’t have it on honestly!

My aunt and uncle are the only people I know that send read receipts.

I have a “friend” who used to do this to me. But, now I think he turned the feature off as it never comes up read and he never responds. Jerk.

I can only see this on facebook but then I have a concious choice to click back into the message feed to see if it’s been read. 


That kind of thing drives me a little insane too.

@MsGinkgo:  I totally do this too… but then I realized the other day that sometimes I’ll be driving and a fb notification for a new message will pop up. I’ll open the message just to see who it’s from while stopped at a light, and then completely space it by the time I get home. I’d just send her a text again to remind her you need the info. I wouldn’t worry too much!

I do that too.

We have too much information out there and too many ways to access it and it’s ruining friendships and relationships.

Sometimes you’re somewhere you can read but not write a message. I do this all the time. I just assume someone is in a meeting or driving or something and will get back to me when they can.

I dislike the message has been read stuff. One of my close friends has a very socially awkward friend from highschool who has been trying for months to get us to come to his parents house for a game day. I don’t really like the guy (he purposely says things to try and upset me) and I don’t really want to hang out at his parent’s house (we’re 24 and all of us are working except for him). I’m pretty sure my other friends who are on this message thread feel the same way. At least once a week for months he would try to put something together for the next weekend, but we were all really busy and were getting tired of telling him we couldn’t make it and eventually we stopped responding. Then the ‘I know you have all seen this, is anyone available?’ messages started. >.< It’s awful being guilt tripped by someone so socially inept.
