How do you communicate differently online than in person, if at all? How do you communicate emotion and intent in a purely written medium?
Actually I do not use text, I send email to my friends. I also call when I feel it is necessary. It is not easy to communicate emotion in a written form . I usually use my phone to talk to my friend or a family member. It is much easier than written form.
I will begin by using the proverb,”Pen is Mightier than the Sword”. The question is ,How Do I Communicate differently online than in person? I will say this first,I’ve been thinking about the daily prompt, I have chosen to do daily.Whenever I write these,I am slowly exposing my personality,my likes,dislikes and other things.Since I’ve signed up for it,I’ll continue to participate in the daily prompt. Today’s prompt is about ,How I manage to communicate online. I have some experience doing it since I make my feelings known,when listening to a song or watching movies on YouTube. Sometimes I do not comment when I read the comments of others who are not hesitant to use abusive language to make their feelings known.The other experience is my online course where I have to answer questions or write a comment.I am in the course since the latter part of 2011. Next in line is blogging ,this has given me tremendous opportunity to write and comment to my blog followers.
Email although last on my list is the one I enjoy most. Here I do communicate a lot.I don’t hesitate to let my feelings known.If I think I am too harsh ,I apologize immediately. But my friend at the other end writes back and let’s me know it’s okay. So my only way is through written form. It keeps me busy.
I am against cell phones,I don’t have one ,which means I do not use text messaging.
