Families Connecting Over Email
from the write-to-me dept
I've been seeing similar columns to this one for years, but it's still nice to read. It talks about how email has allowed people to communicate better. Mostly, it focuses on families who had otherwise lost touch. However, it also talks about how many people simply prefer email as a communication method these days. They quote someone saying that they prefer to discuss things of email since the phone seems impersonal (which seems to be the opposite of what many people I know think). Personally, I think that email is just a different medium for communication. It works okay for some types of communication between some types of people. There are people I prefer to talk to over email. There are people I prefer to talk to over the phone as well as those I prefer to talk to in person I'm not sure that one system is any better overall than any other. I think it just depends on both of the people involved and the nature of their relationship.
