It depends on the situation for me.
I am not a phone person and don’t like to chat so I really prefer email, also, with emails,
I can have a “paper trail” but then again I like texting when leaving a voice message goes unanswered. Facebook drives me crazy but I use it for my business, very rarely for messaging.
Sometimes I think it’s all too complicated but I also think we need to keep up with the latest in order to communicate.
It’s odd that even in an industry that is based on personal communication and interaction we are silently communicating with our fingertips for much of it!
