Since WhatsApp Status came along on WhatsApp, the section has become an entertainment spot for those times when you are bored. Sure there are those friends who post real solemn personal stuff, or even spiritually uplifting things, but then there are those who simply make you laugh.
However, there is this (annoying) habit of people asking ‘please send me that video or photo you have uploaded on your WhatsApp Status.’ Well, it tends to be annoying when more than ten people ask you to send them. If you are experiencing the same annoyance as me, I hope you won’t experience that anymore since I’m going to instruct those annoying friends how to download photos and videos you post on your WhatsApp status.
