Even though there are a lot of communication ways I would like to speak way face to face when ı invite a friend for meet. Because when a person texts me or ı texts another person, there is a possibility of misunderstanding. Although we are using a lot of emojis when a person reads the sending message person could understand it wrong that's why ı prefer to speak on the telephone.

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.
