Texting vs. calling
Text messaging has been a big thing all around the world and there are a lot of people who use it as their main source to communicate. You can now send a long message to whoever you like, before there was a limit on how many words you can have in a message in order to send. You can save messages from whoever you receive from whether it’s from someone special, or just one of your friends. Also, you can review what you are saying before you send it. You can also change the way you want to say it, especially if it is to someone special in your life. You can also send a text message more unnoticeably compared to making a call but consider when you will do it and respect other people especially if you are in a meeting or something. Some disadvantages of text messaging would be if you make a mistake, you will not be able take the message back; therefore, you are going to have to make correction and resend. You are also at a greater risk of sending the message to the wrong person and unfortunately, sometimes, you will not even notice u sent it to the wrong person. Some people who text shorten words by removing and changing letters and even using number like "lol" which actually means "laugh out loud". It is not a bad thing to do but not everyone knows what you are saying. Another disadvantage about texting is that it can be very slow or you won’t even get a response. For example, you will send a message to your friend and he will not bother to reply back to you. So therefore, it would be better to make a phone call and ask him personally instead of having to wait an hour or so just to receive a reply from your friend. If you need a quick reply to whatever question you have do not even bother to text, instead give them a call because you don’t know if there busy or not. Texting is not for everyone especially if you need an immediate answer.
