WhatsApp is the thing for me. I find it to be the most reliable form of both informal and formal communication. It's far more convenient than doing emails. I can be assured of my messages being delivered, read or not read by the recipient because it's kind of commonly used for keeping in touch with friends and family. Guys often tend to spend days on end with this app anywhere and at anytime just to feel the presence of their loved ones. Subsequently, a significant message from me to any of my friends wouldn't go unnoticed if delivered through WhatsApp!

I like to write longer e-mails, not just short messages - sometimes I feel a little bit old-school in my (late 30s) generation. However, it works well with some of my friends or family members older than me.

Actually it depends on what is the news I would like to telling, but often I prefer to use a text by WhatsApp to communicate with my friend, but if it’s an important news I use phone call that will be more fast to get her reaction.

In Brazil, we are used to tell important news by phone. We think letters or text messages are very impersonal and without emotion.

the best communication to give them very important news is to call and quote them somewhere If it was not such important news, I would communicate it by phone

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.
