For me, i prefare to comunicate on social media applications like Facebook, Whats App, and Twitter. These apps provide incredible tools which make the comunication between the people is more easy.

In Brazil, we are used to tell important news by phone. We think letters or text messages are very impersonal and without emotion.

I prefer use text for communicating with my friend to tell my old friend important news. I use a lots of social media application such as whats-app or telegram for this. due to importance of the news it can be using of sms for instant announcing

the best communication to give them very important news is to call and quote them somewhere

If it was not such important news, I would communicate it by phone

Nowadays,we are used to communicating with each other by Facebook or WhatsApp .social media became the bisc method of communication. Especiall they are devolped in such a whirlwind way .on the other hand we lost a very humanitarian face to face touch . I think this is the most crucial price we should pay per using such modern widspread technology.

Today is different than 10 years ago, we can communicate with our family wherever they are. Now days we can use whatsapp video calls to talk with our family, also facebook and instagram.

Technology has changed the world ,it turned it into a global village where people could interact so easily with each other anytime and anywhere,and I just use the magic of Facebook, Instagram , Gmail and a lot of other means of communication in order to tell my old friends the important news .

For me, I use the email to communicate with my old friend to tell him about my news especially when we are far from each other but if we're in the some country I call him .

the one of the benefit when technology invented is to make human life easier. particulary in communication. with technology the distance is nothing. peoples could to keep in touch anywhere their are in. but the problem is the differential of time.

It's conceivable that the most suitable way to deliver a message is through technology, granted the constant development of instant messaging that has been taking place overtime. Merely, because of the accurate features that current technology provides to the users that ease such processes as well as they offer several ways to customize the message and give it a more detailed touch according your tastes. Nevertheless, I consider keeping the traditional way of giving news through post gives it a more meaningful touch, especially when it comes to such an important topic as it's a wedding, for instance.
