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! DQMOT, BSF IDK WCA 2TXT W/LOA.

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.

I like to keep the contact with my friends throught text messenges. Lately, I use to send audios via whatsapp to speak with them and tell anecdotes or some things. I dont use to make telephone calls, just to speak with my mum, dad or brothers or when I need to know something inmediatly I have to get the response quickly.
