We already know that we use WhatsApp to communicate, but it is also important to know how. And, for example, a period at the end of a WhatsApp message means that we are angryThis was revealed by a study by the State University of New York Binghamton.
Obviously the punctuation rules we skip them when using WhatsApp more and more and, therefore, certain codes have meanings. The case of the full stop in a sentence is one of the examples that indicates that we cut off the conversation out of anger.
And if we pay close attention, when we see a full stop it sounds on edge rather than that it respects the rules of the RAE.
The study also reveals that using a exclamation point at the end of a sentencee makes it have a touch ofsincerity said message.
For the study, users were asked questions and they responded with expressions such as “ ok”, “yes” or “vale”, being the big difference between them the use of the point or not as a reaction. 126 university students participated in this American research.
The language of WhatsApp
In any case, those responsible for the study encourage WhatsApp users to use the points within the punctuation rules.
Surely if we analyzed more the messages exchanged through the WhatsApp instant messaging app we would find more meanings to the punctuation marks, emoticons and other types of communication. Each user is different when it comes to expressing themselves, in any case, but the perceptions may be very similar.
