I prefer text message with my colleagues, friends and family for several purposes when it better than talking. And use also emojis but in this lesson, I learned some abbreviation which I don't use before.

I’ll prefer to initiate plan on messages and prefer to speak to friends before executing the plan.

Most of the time I send messages to my friends to adjust a plan, but sometime it does not working so I have to call them.

in personality i prefer to speaks with my friends, we can meet and dicided where we want to go and we can have quality time by meet each other, having so much fun or just delivery food but i like to send a lot of msg for my friends too if im too lazy for meet and both of all is good i think

i often send a lot of messages to my friend to talk about everything. I prefer sending message because i can use emoji to express my feeling and troll my friend. Personally i think talk by sending message make me feel more comfortable and easier to express anything what i want to talk. i'll call my friend whenever i feel really urgent.

actually i send lots of message my friends and colleagues when we want to go somewhere or to make plans. but i prefer to meet my friends face to face bxz it can make me feel good and give more energy. in my country, it is a culture for people to meet relatives, friends and parents every weekend their homes. if we cant meet every weekend , they might say, he or she become bad guys...

I usually send lots of messages to friends to make plans because they are not always available to answer a phone call.
But sometimes we make a video call , tell jokes and make plans.Thus we can have fun when we're free.Sometimes I make a
phone call when I have very important news to tell and I feel too urgent.

I prefer to speak to friends to make plans.

With me, I prefer to speak to friend to make plan. It's convenient and to save more time.

For me, social media and other apps are useful in order to communicate with people who aren´t there physically but sometimes we waste the time texting or sharing things without importance at all and we forget those people who are near to us physically.
By the way, I got a question for everyone who likes to comment. The question would be: How much important are the apps and social media for you in order to take advantage on an area, learning any subject or developing a skill, for example?
Thanks in advance!
