    I'm talking about the "seen" function of facebook messages and the blue tick on Whatsapp.

    So against.

    I tend to automatically assume the worst. So when people read the message and don't reply I start to get paranoid. Then when I see them in person I can't help but feel a bit awkward knowing that they read it and just blanked me.

    That's happening right now grrrr. All I did was ask a simple question JUST REPLY!!

    Against because I either forget to reply or just cannot be bothered to (aka ignore annoying people).
    I've lost count of the number of times I've had people come up to me or message me again accusing me of ignoring them or "not continuing the conversation" (wtf???), most of the time it's just because I forgot :'(

    27.4% of all threads on here are "I texted him/her 3 minutes ago and they still haven't responded i want to die / kill her what should i do" rapidly followed by "Bump".

    Adding an 'unread PM' function will increase this to about 43%

    I like apps where I can read the whole message in the message notification without actually opening the message so even though I've seen it, the other person doesn't know I've seen it.

    This. I don't always open them first thing to avoid them thinking I'm ignoring as want time to reply properly but then forget to do it.
