Face to Face communication is still the bestIn earlier days when people wanted to communicate something to others they had no alternative other than going and meeting them face to face. This was due to the lack of modern modes of communication like mobile phones, messaging etc. Nowadays social media and messaging have engulfed the world in such a way that even two people sitting in the same room tend to talk to each other virtually through chatting, messaging etc.
In offices and even personal life people often communicate with each other through emails and chats and there will be a chain of emails going back and forth. One person sends an email and the other person replies to it asking for some clarification or more information. Then again the first person replies explaining the things but again the second person who may not have understood the email fully replies asking for further clarifications. So sometimes these endless email or chat chains go on till the time the two parties decide "Hey! Let us meet face to face or talk over the phone to sort out things".
So to sort out any issues or misunderstandings in the workplace or in personal life face to face or actual verbal communication always proves to be more helpful than emails, chats or messaging. Expressing the things in writing will always have its drawback as it depends on how different people are able to frame the writing. It can never be equated to face to face talk.
So when things do not become clear or sorted out by exchanging few emails or chat messages then it is always better to switch back to our traditional means of communication which is "Face to Face". It will definitely help to understand and communicate in a better way and issues can be resolved faster.
So what do you think about this?
