Do you send lots of text messages or do you prefer to speak to friends to make plans?
It depends on situation. If I know that my friend is occupy, I prefer send text message. Make a plan by talk better than text Msg. according to me :))

I use messages, emojis, and abbreviations more than phone calls I don't know why but that's how I'm.

Yes, of course. Sometimes I send text messages to my friends. But I am not very familiar with abbreviation or emojis. I need to read others' message more.

When I was a teenager, I loved send a lot of messages to my girlfriend, friends and family. I didn't like speak. Now, I prefer call with phone, because I usually driving car and phone conversations are the best way for me.

LOL I generally make a plan but when we are meeting I cancel it. I often use emojis if they are suitable for my situation. Nearly every using these I check which is new. IDK I really like emojis. I have some friends who use correct language and obsessed with it. The quick way is sending voice message.

In these days I think everyonde sends more messages to make plans, because it is easier and faster. So my answer is more message 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.
