Modern society is obsessed with computer technologies. Adults and teenagers, especially youngsters, seldom write even a few notes in their notebooks. Instead, we send emails and texts. In a word, we’re texting on any possible occasion, considering it to be quicker, more convenient and most of all, more modern than old fashioned hand writing.
Communicating via sending short messages has already transformed into a separate communication style.
Terms such as ‘textese,’ meaning sms language, and ‘textisms,’ which refers to mnemonic devices or word-shortening are widely used via cell phones and on Internet social networks.
Obviously, one should make use of all modern communication trends and devices, but one question arises: whether such an influence of technology is positive or negative? So, is texting harmful or beneficial?
