Do you think online communication has strengthened your family's communication, lessened it, or had no effect on it? Share your thoughts on the question. Give specific examples to illustrate your points.
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 .
