Nowadays, some people may hold the opinion that Face-to-face communication is better than other types of communication. However, others have a negative attitude. As far as I am concerned, I am against this point of view. Of the many reasons why this should be the case, three in particular stand out. My arguments are listed as follows.
One of the primary causes is that communication by suing letters or phone calls instead of face to face will cost us much less money, less time and more effectively. Imagine what would be like if you face to face to inform a party issue to more than ten friends that would be held in the near future? But, thank to our advanced tools, email and telephone, we may use them to do that in less than one minute! How hing effectively we do the same thing! We even may write more about our party goals in detail so that our friends can have some preparation for that.
Another reason why I totally agree with this statement is that we may express ourselves more clearly when using email or phone calls. Let us see an example, if we fell into a dilemma that the product we just bought from one company did not work well or even it did not work at all, what should we do next? To think how embarrasing it would be if we went to the heads of company to clarify our problems! Plus, even if you may go and clearly express your complaint, it must be very easy to cause a conflict beween you and the company`s staff. If so, thing may become worse. Whereas, should you express your problems by using email or even letters, we should have completely different result. This is also suitable for that between our family and intimate friends.
What is also worth noticing fact is that letters will sure be conserved long lasting. Therefore, some communication we ever had between our business partners will be possible to be preserved for our nessary evedences to meet our future needs.
In a word, takeing all the above factors into account, we may safely come to the conclusion that Face-to-face communication is better than other types of communication. We just list three of them, not to mention there are more.
