Gerda in her post talks about teenagers and their use of cell phones by analysing the Jullie Cupples and Lee Thompson’s article Cell phones and the culture of teenage romance (2010).
I believe that it is important to say that not only teenagers text. Everyone uses a text message simply because it is more fast and convenient way to communicate. And I do not believe that expressing feelings and texting have anything in common.
Nowadays people are constantly in a hurry and caught up in their own world of problems. I believe that simply no one has time to maintain a voce conversation. And why stressing about to maintain a voice conversations over the phone when u have easier and less engaging way of communication right in front of you.
