Whatsapp status of the people has been subjected to content analysis backed by the score on NEO five inventory and vice versa. The result shows that subjects who are changing their status frequently (multiple  times in two months) with demotivating content are high on neuroticism and extraversion whereas subjects who are matured and have motivating content have rated high on agreeableness and conscientiousness.
