I prefer talk to my friend. I think its best to discuss about everything and decide.

I think it depends. If it's not in a hurry I prefer to text messages to contact with my friends. But if it's complicated and it can't be spoke just in few words I'd prefer to talk face-to-face with friends to make a big, complex plan.

It depends. sometimes i use a messenger to make plans with my friends and sometimes i use the phone calls for make plans with them.

I prefer to speak with my friends to make plans. However, In fact, we are now working and we don't have lots of time to meet. Thus, text messages is helpful for me to make plans. With the modern of information technology nowaday, every person have a smartphone or more. Making a plan really too easily.

I don't send lots of text messages, I prefer call to make plan than.

of course, I have a lot of whatsapp groups. everytime, plans do by my friends.
usually, I read msg and I confirm lol

yes.I have lots of text messages and sometimes I send voice messages. so I prefer to speak to friends to make plans.

I prefer to send lots of msg to my friends to make plans because I have time for check my work and I can check our msg later;

I prefer making a call to determine a plan rather than writing a message. sending messages means waiting for answers, why I have to wait if I can hear it immediately through the phone, just an opinion.

These days we are busier with work and study than ever before, in most cases meeting friend face-to-face for making a plan is not possible, although it might be more friendly. Indeed, I am not an exception. I prefer to leave a message to save time especially when I do not know in what situations my friends are, I mean when I am calling them. They might be at the University or in the library. LOL
