For sure I will call them to say everything and have a chat with them.

In the same situation of Kath, I think I would have used whatsapp but I think that long email and letter as well it's a perfect way to make someone feel special. Nowadays with istant message we lost that kind of "magic". However I usually prefer texting people. After that, if they ask more details I ask them if I can call them and talk on the phone. But it depends how much "friends" they are, if they are close friend sure I call them, otherwise I think a simple text is enough.

Hi I usually use email official, like a doing job. Very rarely I use email to tell something to my friend when I can't connect them or they are not online. Also I am not good writer and I would prefer to call them. About my wedding, I have been married for 10 years.

When I got engaged which is a decade ago (I feel), I told my friends about it in person as we worked at the same place. For friends who lived abroad, I either texted or emailed.

I use the devices which support the internet and applications that we can use to send text and voice to each other or make an audio and video communication with each other.

When I got engaged, I informed my closest friend via text message to let her know as soon as possible. Later on, we talked on the phone. Thanks to sns nowadays, time difference between us would not separate our bond.

If I will tell my old friend a very important new, I prefer to call her or him, because I think the thelephone is the form of communication "warmer" than an email, considering that I don't write the letters any more, since many years.

that depends if it is something really important I make a call, but I don’t like to make calls, I prefer message apps and I think that is a best option if they are busy they can answer later or call me back if it is necessary to them. or I can message them to set an appointment.
