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.

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!

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.
