The main questions are… Does quicker communication seem more beneficial then face-to-face communication? Are cell phones restricting human relationships or helping them?
To stay positive:
Text messaging is a quicker means of communication. We are always able to stay in contact with the world around us no matter where we are.
On the negative side:
The population, especially teenagers, are talking less on the phone and using text messaging more. Most people would rather send a quick e-mail or text message then call the person or meet with them. People have become less patient with relationships because they are used to the fast pace. Family relationships are strained.
