During my Erasmus in Spain I used to chat with my best friend with WhatsApp; it was very useful and it helped me to inform him about my daily’s news. In particular, I sent him voice messages, because they were/are simpler and quicker to realise than written messages.

I always like to appreciate something good when I see one, excellent work, speak any day, any time, I’ve seen and contacted all sorts but there’s one that’s outstanding, true and reliable.

They helped me spy on my boyfriend whom I suspected had been cheating.

I frequently use WhatsApp when I chat with friends, and sometimes other social media like Instagram or Facebook for commenting or  reacting to their posts.  Talking about importat news I share I would pick phone calls or even voice WhatsApp messages over the traditional wrtitten  communication.

Usually, I will send a message to an old friend of mine. Currently I am living in UAE so messenger or instagram is our medium of communication. But, if both of us are free then I will call her or do a video call.

I personally wouldn't use e-mail with my friends, I only use it for work or university purposes. I'd rather just call or text them through whatsapp, since is a really common app in Brasil. I'd prefer meeting them in person, of course, but if we were so distant from each other as the friends in the story, whatsapp would be the solution for me. I also love letters, but it would feel a little bit old lmao plus is really expensive to send letters in Brasil :(

I loved writing letters, because there is always full emotion. In modern times I prefer WhatsApp, but for something formal I prefer email.

Of course, I will use Messenger platform to make a phone call for my close friend and tell them everything. I think this is the fast way and convenience.

I think I would use social apps like WhatsApp or Instagram. For Instagram, I think I could use the DM or interacting at a post via comments.

I often use social apps like Telegram and Instagram to share important news with my closest friends, but in some cases, I prefer to call them and tell them sth immediately.
