“While most people continue to see face-to-face conversation as most fitting for many serious, emotionally-laden topics, an increase in messaging doesn't mean we’ve stopped meeting in person. In fact, the reverse is true: there appears to be a direct correlation between more messaging and greater in-person connection.” Says Facebook. “There is widespread, global agreement that communication has changed as people embrace more varied methods. However, instead of distancing friends and family members from each other, our diversifying toolkit is associated with the rise in the vibrancy and fulfillment of our social lives.”
