Do you send lots of text messages or do you prefer to speak to friends to make plans?
I send a lot of text messages everyday because I normally I have to work with my laptop and my Iphone. However, I prefer to speak to my friends as I can express my feeling more.

It depends. I usually prefer to text message because it's convenient. You don't have to wait for someone or go somewhere. You can consider a plan on WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram with your friends easily.

If the plan is very important, I prefer to speak with my friends. Since I mostly want to see gestures and hear voices. When I connect real communication with my friends, the conversation satisfies me. Thanks to this, we socialize together.

I usually text message to make plans because I didn't work with my friends and we don't know exactly when we all have free.

I prefer to send my friend a lot of messages to plan the meeting. I want to video call everyone in the group chat, though, so they can all talk about our meeting plan. It helps us unify the plan as soon

I do prefer to use short and specific messages. I hate to be interrupted because I'm a busy person.
