If you group chat via sms/text, you’ve probably come across the irritation of trying to opt yourself out of a group chat. People begin having one on one conversations and before you know it, there are side conversations and 30+ unread messages for a conversation you could care less about.
A similar problem occurs in email…like being part of a CC chain email and having people REPLY ALL rather than REPLY directly to the person they are trying to communicate with. Arrrggg
There are companies like GroupMe et al tackling this problem by making you download an app, but that’s a problem because it forces people to adopt a new app to communicate. My idea is platform agnostic and could solve this problem on the SMS level without the need for an app
I quickly did a mockup of the flow and system and would appreciate you ripping it apart in anyway:
Does anyone know if something like that is around?
