Nowadays, "the face to face" have lost importance among people around the world and It is ever so difficult to try getting a conversation like decades ago without cell phones, so in my case, my friends are penfriends ´cause every one prefer using technology and media instead of talking face to face

i usually call and sent voice message when i want to communicate with friends, nowadays i prefer to sent text message because talking on phone take long time and most of time friends are busy and they are not able to answer especially to voice message and it is difficult to hear my message.

I prefer to write text messages to my friends when making plans.

It depends, but I usually prefer to send text messages.

I use a lot of social networks and use many emojis in my text messages

The advantage of messages is the possibility to contact many friends at the same time. This allows us to decide more easily the destination and the time of our meet

As my family lives far from me, in Belgium, while I live in the South of France, we usually use modern means of commuications as "Whatsapp or Viber" or text messages to keep in touch each other.
So every day, I can see and hear my children and grand-children.
To specify the dates of our meetings or the dates during which we babysit the children, we always use SMS. It is more prudent not to forget the periods

I usually send lots of text messages to my friends, or if we together we speak to make plans.
I also hate to talk on cellphone, I really prefer text messagens.

I like to speak to my friends if we making plans over the phone
