    vs

    [​IMG]



    I should start by saying this post isn’t exactly groundbreaking. I’m confident that I’m not the first person to think about the pros and cons of communicating with people via phone versus email. That is what is on my mind this week, though, which means it’s going in the blog.


    Phone: You can often get the answers to quick questions almost immediately.
    Email: You need to compose an email, send it, and wait for a response.
    Winner: Phone

    Phone: You may need to play phone tag or schedule a specific time in order to talk to someone.
    Email: You can write and send a message whenever it’s convenient.
    Winner: Email

    Phone: You depend on your ability to speak tactfully and avoid saying the wrong thing.
    Email: You can review your message as many times as necessary and even have someone else proof it.
    Winner: Email (especially if you’re not very tactful)

    Phone: You run the risk of getting dragged into lengthy conversations.
    Email: You have unilateral control to focus on only those topics you care about.
    Winner: Email

    Phone: You can usually recognize and correct misunderstandings and confusing statements immediately.
    Email: You may send several emails back and forth to clarify a vague point.
    Winner: Phone

    Phone: You can only exchange information that you can speak.
    Email: You can send attachments (and URLs that can be clicked instead of spelled-out).
    Winner: Email

    Phone: You need to make multiple calls or setup a conference call to share information with multiple people.
    Email: You can easily send an email to any number of recipients.
    Winner: Email

    Phone: You must ignore interruptions or make another call later.
    Email: You can stop and start writing your message as needed.
    Winner: Email

    Phone: You must record your conversations or do without evidence of what was discussed.
    Email: You have a written record.
    Winner: Email

    Phone: You have everyone involved in the same conversation “thread” when talking to several people.
    Email: You have people responding at different times, and they may not have read what everyone else has written.
    Winner: Phone




    so u can always deside what is better to use in the situation

    Personally i prefer the phone at least i get an immediate interaction.
    Also I like to hear the emotions in peoples voices.

    May be when you talk on telephone you get to know them better and the way they expound on one’s doubts leads to a more legitimate talk.

    You can recognize if the one you're talking with is mad or happy, sick or well, lie or honest.

    Then all of us may face this conversation:

    Did you get my email?"

    "What email?"

    "The one I send about ....."

    "I didn't get the email. When did you send it?"

    "2 days ago!!."

    Yours Mag:)

    thx mag for this feedback.
    for me it matters to whom i need to "talk"

    sometimes here is better to right emails, because then u have a least something in ur hands u can show

    only when i speak to friends i agree with
    "You can recognize if the one you're talking with is mad or happy, sick or well, lie or honest."
