Texting Vs. Calling
There are many similarities and differences in these communication methods. You could point out that both are ways to communicate but texting is way more difficult to tell how someone actually feels since you cannot hear their voice. Texting is the newest and coolest thing to do among young adults. Texting involves seeing a block of information displayed that just gets straight to the point. It allows the exact message to be sent clearly to the other person. No distractions, poor reception, or loud noises will cause for message misinterpretation as long as you say what you want to say in a clear and understandable way. It’s also a lot cheaper to send a text than make a phone call. What I really hate about texting is when someone is trying to have a full conversation with you via text message when they could just pick up the phone. Texting is better when you are at work or home and want to have a fun light conversation with a friend about nothing. And there are a gazillion things that you can do with texting that you can’t really do over the phone. For instance you can send those silly emoji’s and pictures, video clips and screenshots. Besides basic efficiency, one of the reasons behind the method that is texting is the preferred means of communication through texting is privacy. Nobody can really know exactly what you’re up to because you can’t hear the person’s conversation. Texting is really good when you don’t want to hear a person voice or make too much effort in a conversation.
