both actually. sometime i'll send a text message to my friend  if it's just a hang out. but if we're going to plan for a trip, we will make a meeting and speak to each other about it.

Well, It depends on my mood hahaha. However, most of the time when we're in the first stage which is the planning I prefer to speak, and finally when we agree we star to message each other.

Well, I usually prefer to speak directly in person or by phone to make plans with friends, 
but sometimes I make plans using text messages when I chat with a group of several friends
at the same time though. 

Thanks for the lesson.

Great site!

Do you send lots of text messages or do you prefer to speak to friends to make plans?

I love to send messages rather than speak to friends as I can use a lot of emojis and funny things as well. Moreover, it is also cost saving too. However, sometimes, if we make a plan to go for a trip, then speaking to friends on phones will be much easier.

the main point when writing the message to my friends, is that I prefer to make it more understandable and conspicuous

I prefer to send messages, as I can send emojis and photos. Furthermore, it's more practical.

I prefer to send messages and plan a place to meet and chat. It's easy to know if they can meet or not.

I prefer to speak to friends to make plans. Because we can easily gather ideas and make the decision instead of texting each other, it will take a lot of time, and not anyone will have free time to answer directly.

I prefer to send a message, because I can send emojis and pictures. Also, I can be shorter and more useful.

I prefer to speak 📱 because we can agree more easily about what to do or the time that we could meet ⌚ and listen to the voice of my friends with their real emotions; I think it is more interesting and funny sometimes. 😁
