I think emails and messengers are a good way of communication. First of all, you can be always in touch with people you like. It’s easy and fast to write a few words to your friends. Second, one can communicate with a few friends at the same time. New messengers nowadays allow you to record voice massages, which is even better.

At the same time there are people who say that people communicate less in person than, say, fifty years ago. They rarely visit each other. There are not those deep, heart talks as it was before.

In my opinion these people have a point. The times have changed. People are more money oriented now and time is money. Nevertheless, you can’t blame messengers and emails for this. Those who have a good cultural level and good philosophical topic to discus do it by emails or text messengers anyway.

In conclusion, I'd like to say that if we weigh all the advantages of emails and messengers against the disadvantages, we'll see that the advantages greatly outweigh disadvantages.
