I'd rather speak to them to make plans, but I often send messages to remind them of our projects.

Since we started using the WhatsApp, text messages became an elementary tool for communication with friends. Usually, if I feel that the conversation is a small one, I prefer to send text messages. But if the conversation involves discussions, I prefer to speak on phone then

I usually prefer to send text messages because i don't know if the person is availeble for a phone call. However, sending audio masseges or making a phone call is often quicker than texting.

Actually i often send messgage with my friend everyday , because we are both busy weekly and when i send msg to my friend by phone , i can use emojis on apps and use funny picture on our conservation. But i prefer call or speak than send msg to my colleague or my boss , because it doesnt spend time much.

Well, I prefer sending messages with my friends. At this year, there is the separation between us because of the career pathways we chose. Someone is in the hometown and someone is in the other country, so it is better to send mails when we miss. We meet a lot of people in our working environment but the childhood friends are the best to show our dark sides, I think.

Do you send lots of text messages or do you prefer to speak to friends to make plans?
I prefer to make plans through texts because I feel it's more convenient as my friends might be working. And also, it's more practical to text when it's to meetup with large group of friends.

I prefer to send messages, because it's very convenient. But if there are something important to announce, I'll have to talk face to face to make sure everyone knows it.
