I more prefer face-to-face communication because I think people can express own feelings better. This is right due to real environment and eye-to-eye contact. But when I come to question which type of communication is more important my answear will change. My answear is online communication is more important due to more reasons. One of them is that people in forein country far away from their family, friends can talk with them. Also online communication is very important for jobs. For example more businessmans are meeting with online connection. With this meetings are easily and faster than travel from one place to another.

I prefer face-to-face conversations. It is easier to understand someone when you can hear their tone of voice and see their facial expressions. However, emoticons and the usage of /j or /s (which means “joke” or “sarcasm”) make it harder to misinterpret the meaning of someone’s message, but I don’t think that it is a complete replacement.

I prefer online because I can say what I want without any embarrsement but face to face is good for health but you cannot say everything you want to and we can communicate anyone online so I think I prefer it online

In today, online communication plays a so important role. We can communicate with friends who are far away and many other things. For me, I prefer live communication because we can see friends, their emotions and in general so much more pleasant. Internet communication is very advanced but it can never replace live communication. Thank you. up

In today's world there are so many technology's coming up and out of them is online communication. We all are already so much involved in electronic gadgets so, I think there is a lack in face to face communication.
