When I make plan with my friends we send lots of messages to each other. But I prefer to speak when make plan. Because sending a lot of message is waste time for me.

I prefer to send of text messages to my friends because they might be busy at this time.

I prefer to talk with my friends face to face.

I prefer to send a massage if my friend is far away to me. Also in massages
I don't use any abbreviations because I think ridiculous. İf you make short a word Why don't you make short others? At that time we make a sentence just abbreviations.Like''GAS 2U!

I mostly use phone call . I think that it is faster than text messages !

I prefer to speak with my friends when we make plans.I dont like to send a lot of messages when we make plan.

I prefer to speak in person or phone calls, it's making "the progress" faster and this is the best way to communicate by showing emotions, voice tones,... a good way to "express" the story or conversation. Even though I still prefer texting messages sometimes for the polite reasons.
