I believe private messages, or any conversation you have with a person should be based off the individual. I'm not one to send a message that reads the exact same thing to everybody in my circle, nor do I intend to. It seems so impersonal.
I don't send out general messages to people in my circle, sure sometimes I will message someone and say "Hi how are you" or just letitng them know that I am thinking about them, or if I need advice on something than I will message them.
Sadly, I wish I sent out more...
For a cause on here, dealing with a *********. But I don't feel comfortable using the new mass gesture feature. I like to give different ones to different people. Even last year, when I sent holiday cards to everyone, those were all personalized done one at a time. XD
This is just me. Doesn't apply to you, OK? But I don't send out general good mornings, or good evenings, or I'm going to bed now, messages. At least not as a rule.
I'm cool with you doing it, so this isn't an attack or a complaint.
I just don't do it...
I prefer to make my responses personal to you - messages, gestures etc - rather than sending a one for all. That's cos they're from the heart.
Now If I had to get a urgent message then I just might but I feel some are overdoing it.
Over and out.
