Texting is better that talking in person

A recent study showed that teenager's text at least 10 times a day and at least 3000 messages a month. In the year of 2009, cellphone users sent approximately 4.1 billion texts every day. In other words, texting is one of the easiest ways to communicate in the 21st century. It can also be one of the cheapest. You can pay $50 to fill up your gas tank and hang around with the people you text for a week or less, or you can communicate with a lot of people for about the same price for a month. Texting is a better form of communication than talking in person because it allows you to talk to different people at the same time and you can also ignore them without being rude. Conversations can be more private through texting and it is easier to be honest via text. In reality people tend to be shyer in person than while texting. One reason texting is better than talking in person is because texting offers privacy. For example, when parents are really strict with their teenagers it causes them to rebel and be sneaky at a young age. I personally have gotten to a point where I’m next to my parents while texting with my friends about what we are going to do that night or weekend. It’s not that my parents are really strict with me it’s just that even be at 18 my parents don’t let me go out as much as my acquaintances do. Texting lets me keep the secrets I don’t want my parents to find out. Everyone needs privacy at some point, but for several circumstances you can’t always have it. Whether its gossip or personal issues you only want several people to know. You can text it and let them know instead of telling them in person and having the chance of someone else hearing it. In other words, if you want to run information to anyone and keep it private without running the chance of people hearing it or misinterpreting, texting is the answer.
