WhatsApp Group Rules

  • Remain focused and refrain from sending other messages.
  • Reconsider your posts and hold off on reacting hastily. Think of resting on it.
  • Before posting, see if the information is accessible online. For inquiries you cannot find online or by getting in touch with the business or school right away, use the chat feature.
  • Don’t bombard the group with spam. Make a separate chat to share memes, company promos, family photos, and other content, then invite people to join.
  • Don’t republish the same content more than once; post your message in one cohesive paragraph.
  • Refrain from reacting with distinct checkmarks, “done,” prayer hands, and thumbs up. Assume that everyone in the group participates in any call to action and only reply if required. If the message is deserving, think about simply loving it instead of adding remarks, checkmarks, etc. Remember that every response could cause a “ding” on someone’s phone.
  • Steer clear of private chats within the group. Go to the private messaging section.
  • Unless there is an emergency, don’t post in the group between 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM.
  • Please only respond if you can go when someone requests a positive response, such as an RSVP. Only respond if you can attend.
  • Don’t say “I don’t know” in response to a question posed to the group if you don’t know the answer. Await a response from a knowledgeable person.
  • Don’t send a hundred “thank you” notes. If you want to thank them directly, send them a private note. It would also be fine to “like” or “heart” the message now.
  • When someone asks a question, reply directly to them in a private message if you have any relevant information to add, or don’t answer if someone else has previously answered.
  • Refrain from making the group into a political forum. Avoid arguing, voicing strong ideas, spreading misinformation, and inciting fear. Check your sources before sharing.
  • Never criticize someone or voice complaints in front of the group. Talk to the appropriate individual independently.
  • Never disparage the group leader, the company, or the school. This is not the intended usage of the conversation, and it may get messy. File complaints through the appropriate channels or talk about them with friends.
  • Clearly and frequently communicating the community’s rules.
  • Knowing how to give comments, what to do when someone violates the rules, and how to contact the administrators in case of problems will be helpful to members. Including a link to WhatsApp’s Terms of Service in your community rules is smart.
  • The management and safe expansion of a community is a major job of community administrators. To assist you in completing your activities efficiently, learn how to assemble and develop a solid administrative team, divide the burden, and create procedures.


A community’s values are reflected in its regulations. They make it clear which actions are acceptable and which are not. Additionally, they make it obvious what behaviors may result in a warning, termination, or report to WhatsApp.
