I prefer text messages as I can send whenever it is. Sometimes it's more easier to have conversation on social media than in person. We can even escape some of the awkward situation by the help of technology. Furthermore, it become more popular during the covid lockdown. Although we know we can't describe our full feeling with a message on the test sceen, we depend on the technology more and more these days.Who knows this will be the only kind of future conversation.

I prefer to send text messeges to make plans. Because my friends are quite busy. They have to work and study all day so it is inconvenient to speak in person or call them. That's why I send them messeges and they can reply when they have freetime.

I would like to speak to friend to plan for meet. Message is very take time to answer. Speak to a friend is save time rather than waiting online for friend.

i think i prefer to speak to my friend to make plans because We can discuss it thoroughly and we can and we can avoid unwanted situations like " bể kèo" It is a word that is used quite commonly in Vietnam to say the case of not being able to go somewhere after a discussion

I prefer to talking to my friends in person to make plans because its nicer to combine it together, but usually we like to combine the details by message because is easier to remember and think about.
