Do you send lots of text messages or do you prefer to speak to friends to make plans?
I'd like to send message to making plan in the first. We can bring up primary ideas and when we got agreed, I'd prefer to speak and finalize them.

I prefer more call but sometimes I dont want to hear me and due to this I write text messages. For example when I am in school I or when I am home with my family I prefer to send text messages.

I prefer text messages as I can send whenever it is. Sometimes it's more easier to have conversation on social media than in person. We can even escape some of the awkward situation by the help of technology. Furthermore, it become more popular during the covid lockdown. Although we know we can't describe our full feeling with a message on the test sceen, we depend on the technology more and more these days.Who knows this will be the only kind of future conversation.
