It's easy speaking to a screen than to a face. You can be more honest and blunt.<br />
I personally prefer talking face to face but texting sure is wonderful for long distances. There were some texts that brightened my day up!
When you text someone you can change what are you going to say before sending it I think this is the reason people are just scared to say something they might regret later
I prefer texting over talking because it is quite and non invasive. Plus it can be a filter when needed judge by you words not your tone.
Well as conspiracy theory evolve the truth is the government developed the technology and had private contractors develop for public use to circumvent the need for a wiretap. The greater good and a legal invasion of privacy, coupled with the texting while driving laws to allow semi-legal stop and seizures, the revenue of fines associated with the breaking of the laws. This was all a subliminal program televised on public airwaves to indoctrinate the weak minded public into believing that communications by texting is reasonable hip way to stay in touch with friends and family.
i dont know because it annoys me
I don't really know ! I've often wondered that myself ... I'd much rather TALK to someone than continue to text -text and Text back and forth .... you can hear emotion in talking and know how the person is feeling about what they say .. texting is just bland .
I never do it, NEVER, I think it's too officious, not my style.
Because texting can't be interrupted by others and can be edited at will. <br />
Talking can be frequently interrupted, and is beyond editing .
I don't text. (period)
Sometimes being face-to-face isn't possible. Two of my sons have 'voice recognition' on their phones,and can 'talk' their texts to people... Isn't that awesome? Personally, I'd prefer a phone call...
Short attention span.<br />
Had someone text me there was a server issue and proceeded to send me text after text about what was going on. 20 seconds on the phone could have resolved it.
Texting allows you to communicate just the information you need to, without the need for social nuances, niceties, correct grammar or spelling. It's plain, simple, and quick.
Its the culture. People have discovered a new way of communicating and it has a mysterious effect about it too.
