What's up with friends messaging you through random social media outlets as opposed to phone call, text message, IM or email?

Some folks seem insistent on communicating only through facebook messages, LinkedIn or Words With Friends chat. Or through teedub message!

My mom is the worst offender... putting the most personal family messages on my facebook wall. WTF? Mom, call me!

I think FB is valid, since everyone is on it all the time, everyone has the app on their phone etc. LinkedIn would be ok for a business related message. Words with Friends chat is dumb.

my biggest pet peeve is when people call instead of text

not this kid...


also, it sometimes will take days for me to reply to messages received via any medium....

although I'm probably best at replying to texts...but when I'm tired of talking I just stop responding

if I have THAT much to say to you then I'm just going to call

I do both. I'll use Facebook for group events because some people never seem to use email. I'll text those that I don't think we'll see the Facebook message. I type faster than I can text/Swype, so I usually prefer it if given the option.

My sister is prolific google messenger user, I think her boss frowns on her texting at her desk so she just does it from the computer to look like she is working.

I, too, am one of those people who only checks facebook once in a great while. Text is great for short messages but I'm not a fan of multimessage conversations; just press the damn call button unless you're in a place where that's not feasible.

I, too, use this method of communicating most often.

Worse than the wall posts, are people that comment on photos with something completely unrelated to the picture you put up. At least wall postings are only seen by mutual friends or someone that actually clicks on your wall.

I enjoy hearing their voice.

this sounds like someone's grandmother bitching about people not handwriting letters anymore.

it's 2012, nobody talks on the phone socially anymore.

I call my parents because they're septuagenarians and would have no idea what was going on if i sent them a text, and that's about it.

for real, who wants to have an actual human conversation when they can abbreviate words for 160 characters

Its one thing to not want to talk on the phone. Its something entirely different to actively not answer the phone just because spoken conversation disgusts you.

i refuse to link my facebook to my phone. that shit's just not that important.
if you want to ask a simple question, text.
if you have a complex question or multiple questions, or just want to chat, call.
if i don't answer, it may mean i don't feel like talking, so if it's important, leave a message and i'll call you back.

I spend about 3 hours a day on conference calls. If you call me, I'm most likely on another phone call OR I'm sick of talking on the phone. That said, if you're my mother, my best friend, my boss, my client or my doctor, then I'm picking up. Otherwise, your call will likely get screened.

Texting is much more efficient.

Seems to be the case for a lot of people here. I don't like talking on the phone unless its to someone I'm banging, buying drugs from, or immediately related to, but its a necessary evil that I tolerate in order to appeal to the masses.

pretty much agree. although if someone calls me (and i've got their number saved) then i'll almost always answer if i can.

well yeah, I'm not a big phone talker either but "spoken conversation" seems to cover all aspects of communicating with someone via voice...that seems a bit much

By and large I could do without most forms of communication. I spent 45 minutes last might talking to my father and it was awful. Email is annoying, gchat and facebook messenger can lick my asshole. Texting, which I used to hate is about all I can tolerate anymore unless you're blowing me on the regular.

I prefer to use the call function on my phone for communicating with people.

My pet peeve is probably texting "hey." If you want to have an idle conversation with someone, call me. I can make it happen. But I can't do it over text.

Another one is the lack of appreciation for other people's schedules. You used to have to determine if somebody was going to be home and if they would be free (not eating dinner, getting ready for bed, or catching the latest episode of Dynasty). Now people just get right to texting: hey, are u there, where are u. Or they leave some snippy voicemail message: Well, I guess you're not picking up your phone right now...

People like receiving messages. It has some weird psychological gratification.

This thread delivered. Thx for the pics, H8R!

The bad thing about phone calls is that you can't send penii pics via phone call.
