I like sending text messages to my friends when I was young. But when I have grown up I usually make phone call when needed beacaue it is more convernient for both. Especially when it is a important conversation. I also usually text to my wife and sons when we are away from each other. I love to see my children and wife texts when I am away from home for business.

I prefer to speak with my friends to make plans. I also send some messages for them but sometimes I prefer calling, it's more quickly, I think.

I like both but I prefer texting. IDK why but my friends show to be more excited online. In real life they don't show such interest. They agree in meeting with each other but don't really make a plan and end up forgetting afterwards.

I'm not really into writing and sending lots of text messages. I prefer to speak to friends to make plans. Sometimes I use text messages when I am short of time.

I wouldn't say I like online conversations, I prefer to talk in reality

I often send msg to my friends but I prefer to speak to them in person. Although it has become extremely convenient to stay connected with friends through online, Nothing beats meeting friends in person and catch up with them.

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.
