“What do you usually use when chatting with your friends?”

There are so many ways to have instant chatting platforms. As for me, I do chat with my friends through the use of social media like Fb messenger, WeChat, and iMessage. Why? It is cheaper than loading up my mobile network. I guess it is nice to have an internet after all. How about you, guys? Image Credit: pixabay.com

I use Facebook, but also the landline phone, as I have unlimited calls covered with the Internet contract.

I think it is also nice to have the landline. As for me, it is unlimited only within my city.

@LadyDuck It was nice to have unlimited calls to these territories. I basically feel overwhelmed by having an internet and be connected to people from different countries.

Some of my online students used WeChat, then that's the time I use it. I think WhatsApp is the counterpart of WeChat in terms of allowed social media in China.

I usually chat on the phone with friends. I do not use FB, too time-consuming to me, so a phone call it is.

It is also more convenient to call than sending SMS. I find it troublesome sometimes. It is really a time saver by just calling through the phone.

I don't have time for chat. Most people send me a text. The only chat system I use is Messenger and that's for giving 24/7 support to those with tinnitus, hyperacusis, vertigo.It's my volunteer time.

@JustBhem For China, they are not allowed to use foreign social media. It is strictly to use WeChat, QQ and Sina Weibo. I am not sure in South Korea.

Here probably Wechat is the most famous and popular chatting platform. So most of the time I will use it to chat with my friends. The next popular one is QQ.

I do think WeChat is famous in your country. QQ is also one of the social media available there. How about Sina Weibo?

I'm old fashioned so I actually will call people on my cell phone or text. After that, e-mails work good for me.

At some point in my life, I realized that spending more chatting with some of the friends are not ideal. I prefer to chat with sense like being here.
