Online communication has in several ways increased and strengthened family communication and increased bonding . Previously it was very tough for us to keep in contact with my parents who used to live in other country  . About 10 years back the only option was mail or normal phone call (which is very costly) . But now after the development of Skype for video calling , viber for internet calling and what's app for messaging it has become quite easy to keep long distance relationships strong . Since the cost is very low we prefer it . 

In my friends case he too used to see his father once in several years and it was quite tough tough to live without seeing your loved one for so many years . Postal and normal international phone calling were not efficient and was not much helpful . To only hear an electronic voice for from one side of phone for several years is not satisfactory . He now uses Skype and mostly prefers video calling . Honestly to say video calling has really changed lives and made them more bearable and some of us are proof to this .
