Today, most of us live our lives partly on social media. We talk to people, don’t like them, and move on; all of it happens online. And although it sounds unnatural and awkward, it’s pretty common, especially among the late millennials and Gen Z.
One of the biggest issues with this method of socialization is privacy. We know, we know. Privacy is always good. There isn’t anything like too much privacy. And we agree; that privacy is indeed essential. But too much privacy often leads to unaccountability and irresponsibility. Don’t understand? Let us explain.
Many people don’t understand how much these things mean to others and often ghost people online. This leaves the other person feeling rejected and insecure. Think about it; you’ve been talking to this wonderful person online who seems to really understand who you are. However, after a week, they suddenly stop talking to you. They don’t respond to your texts and don’t reach out to you at all. That can’t feel very good, can it?
Today, we’ll talk about something similar; how to know if someone’s muted you on WhatsApp? We’ve also discussed how to mute someone in case the situation arises.
Is it Possible to Know if Someone Muted You on WhatsApp?
We’re sorry to say that there’s no definitive way for you to find out if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp. Think about it; all social media platforms value their users’ privacy above all else, right? So, does it make sense for them to make you aware that someone has muted you?
But don’t worry; we’ll not hang you out to dry. A few tell-tale signs can confirm if someone has muted your chats or status updates on WhatsApp. Again, these hints are not definitive and have no guaranteed accuracy.
How to Know if Someone Muted You on WhatsApp
Has one of your friends been ignoring you on WhatsApp? Have you seen them being online but not seeing or replying to your messages? That’s a strong indication that they might’ve muted you.
If someone seeing your status religiously has suddenly stopped doing so, it’s a good indication that they’ve muted your status updates. Moreover, if they’ve been updating their status and messaging you anyway, that’s even more suspicious, don’t you think?
If you have a close-enough relationship with this person, then the best course of action for you is to go to them and ask them directly. They might hesitate initially, but in the end, they will tell you whatever’s bothering them.
On the other hand, if the two of you aren’t that close, then maybe it’s time for you to rethink your last few conversations with them. Is there a chance you might’ve come across as clingy or annoying?
If so, don’t worry. It’s a good sign that you’ve identified the problem. All that’s left to do is to confront them straight up. You can choose to apologize for or explain your behavior to them. Lastly, if you’re at your wits’ end, then you can seek out a mutual friend and ask them if they’ve been having the same problem with this person.
