Regarding WhatsApp, you said the answer. That discomfort and pressure to respond is exactly the point. They can passively leverage that feeling of "I know my friend knows that I'm online and I'm a bad friend if I don't engage" to maintain engagement. Not doing so elsewhere may be a matter of testing / comparison.
