HOW TO: NOT Seenzoned in Facebook

11 May 2014 / No Comments
Probably one of the key features in Facebook is Seen. When someone sends private message or chat you and you read it, it eventually displays seen(with check icon and timestamp) to the one sent message/chat. This is a quite powerful indication that the other end is indeed reading your chat or message whenever you have seen "SEEN".

However, it can be hurt sometimes. Like, you create a message for that someone with effort but it turns out that he/she just reads it and does not even reply to your messages. Painful right? Most especially, when that someone matters you most.

So how not to hurt and avoid being seenzoned?
