It’s a text, text, text world

#124: How do you communicate differently online than in person, if at all? How do you communicate emotion and intent in a purely written medium?

When writing emails, social media posts etc, I try to convey emotions through the (over-usage sometimes) or exclamation marks and smiley faces. However, I’d like to think that the people who know me, know that 99% of what I say is in a friendly, fun way and so read it as such 🙂

That said, I’m all for real conversations and try to keep written ones to a minimum… or as a 90% real, 10% written ratio!
