In my opinion,I think that an online communication is kinda similar to a face-to-face one 'cause making an online video call is like having a real face-to-face conversation.
An online conversation is better than a face-to-face one 'cause with technology,it's simple to make a conversation anywhere and I don't need to embarrass myself with travelling or spend my time with hand-written letters.

Firstly I like online communication more than face-to-face ... I think because I'm not used to face-to-face conversations .. as a person born in 2000 and most of my childhood was on internet , I don't mean that I'm shy or something like that .
I think it's an advantage to be able to edit your texts ... In the real world if you said something wrong or bad, it's over , you said it ! but online you can have your time to think about what you wrote

There are many changes in the way we communicate through technology. In the one hand, technology seems to reduce the hole word into a little village, by enabling people to talk together across the world. But in the other hand, technology distracts people from the real communication.. just like the example that B provided. Sure, you still can talk to those who are near you, but you can't focus your hole attention on real life of you keep on scrolling the news feed of your social media home page.
