Don't Send Group Texts to People Who Don't Know Each Other
Group texts are almost always super-annoying because they involve a whole bunch of people and the more people involved with anything, the more annoying that thing will be. Plus, using group texts as a tool for coordination seems, at best, a bit dysfunctional and, at worst, a sign of laziness from the originator of the text. But when you don't know the other people looped into the group text? That's the fucking worst. Because then it looks like you're getting text messages from numbers you don't know, which is always creepy. And you might think you can guess who some of the people involved are, but you'll never really know. And you keep getting the texts and it's awful. Never, ever do this.
Do Send Individual Texts to Your Individual Friends
Seriously. Is it that much extra work to copy and paste your message? I mean, yeah. Sure, it is. But don't be lazy. These are your friends you're communicating with. And if you want them to stay your friends, treat them well.
