How to participate in a group chat

There are no other methods as far as I'm concerned
  1. 1.
    Active approach: respond to as many individual texts as possible, facilitate discussion
  2. 2.
    Passive approach: respond every so often, feel no obligation towards the chat environment
  3. 3.
    Don't-forget-me approach: wait until the chat peak has died, send one all-encompassing message (usually a hahahah or something of the like)
