Why Are There So Many Messaging Apps

Can I please get a break. These are 6 of the message apps that I use constantly. Then there are several that I was forced to download when I was in Southeast Asia. I hope I'm not the only one that thinks it's a bit overkill.  I wish there was an app that consolidated all of my messages into one easily digestible platform.

Then I have EVEN more me messaging capabilities in each of my social networks. I die a bit everyday from my hundreds of vibrations and notifications. At least there are apps that allow me to post messages to all of my followers on my different accounts at the same time. That's one small win. It's just so hard these days to have authentic social media accounts with all of this messaging optionality. But I probably won't stop posting on them all so I will just have to suck it up. 

I at least wish there was one chat platform that all apps used that could easily port contacts across my phone books, apps, and etc. Maybe it's already out there? But that would reduce a large friction point for me and plenty of other people I'm sure. Blog XII.
