Nowadays,we are used to communicating with each other by Facebook or WhatsApp .social media became the bisc method of communication. Especiall they are devolped in such a whirlwind way .on the other hand we lost a very humanitarian face to face touch . I think this is the most crucial price we should pay per using such modern widspread technology.

Today is different than 10 years ago, we can communicate with our family wherever they are. Now days we can use whatsapp video calls to talk with our family, also facebook and instagram.

the one of the benefit when technology invented is to make human life easier. particulary in communication. with technology the distance is nothing. peoples could to keep in touch anywhere their are in. but the problem is the differential of time.

I prefer to use instant messaging from my smartphone when it comes to tell old friends important news. However, the problem is not that simple. Usually when we're trying to communicate with some old friends, we don't have their contacts (phone number). So, we will try to reach them through their social media account.

I still live near to my best friends but If one day I'll live many miles away from them I think I'll call for all of them as much as possible.

Hello Rosalind,

Kath and Michael are not planning to get engaged because they are already engaged. We know this because they have a date for their wedding:

The wedding's going to be at home in London in September
