I love sending message to my friends and family, message like how was your day or send them memes, but when I´m gonna explain something I send an audio or make a videocall. The emojis and gift are an usefull tool to put feelings in message I use them a lot.

I prefer to text but depends on the plan if it is a big plan I prefer to talk about it and organize it, but if it something like go for a coffee or dinner I prefer just text to my friend.

It depends on the situation.Sometimes I send lots of text message.But texting message makes a situation a little complexed and takes time to get a clear point.Sometimes calling is faster than texting.btw I use these two ways nearly everyday and like both.

I prefer to speak to friends to make plans because messaging takes lots of time and by messaging you can't clear your point. Sometimes messages make things unclear and misunderstandable. so I prefer to speak over messaging.

I prefer to speak to friends to make plan or to demande information. I hate sending message because i waste a lot of time. But in working time, i have to send message instead of calling , i dont want to disturb my friends at work
