How do you communicate differently online than in person, if at all? How do you communicate emotion and intent in a purely written medium?
Honestly, I think my communication is the same whether it be online or in person. It probably a little harder for me to put my thoughts down on paper or when typing something such as this daily prompt. The one thing about me, I don’t text. Yes, I don’t text. Even though everyone that I know text and probably prefer text as their choice of communicating with people, I don’t. I usually prefer hearing the person on the other side of the phone or a simple email. Even with family members.
When communicating with words, expressing emotion for me is difficult. Maybe because am one that doesn’t express emotions that much. Maybe it a guy thing, since we tend not to express our emotion because it a sign of weakness. I do use the 🙂 smile face with typing a message on facebook or a email, and it the only sign I use to communicate emotion.
