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.

I prefer to send a lot of messages to my friends to plan our meeting. Because we're all so busy. We have a shared chat where we can schedule our meetings. After we plan the meeting we'll meet.

I am a texting person; I don't like to making phone calls as long as there is no emergency, LOL. I think I prefer texting to phone calls because it is something that I can manage. For example, if I called a talkative friend, he/she might talk for nearly an hour which it a kinda waste of time :D. On the contrary, if they send the whole conversation as a message, I won't read it or at least I will read it when I have enough time to do. I feel like a bit mean but anyways that's it :D.

I'd rather speak to them to make plans, but I often send messages to remind them of our projects.

Since we started using the WhatsApp, text messages became an elementary tool for communication with friends. Usually, if I feel that the conversation is a small one, I prefer to send text messages. But if the conversation involves discussions, I prefer to speak on phone then
