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.

Well, I often prefer speaking over texting because it is the more effective way to make a plans with friends. People are very busy with their daily works, they dont have time to check their phones so its better to have a talk rather texting

I prefer to speak to my friends to make plans, many times text messages do not permit say what I want to do.

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.
