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.
