Email Has Changed Communication


Which of the following statements is NOT true of how email has changed the way people communicate?


Writing style has become shortened; as email becomes a more common way of communicating, a new language of abbreviations and shorthand sentences is forming.


People don’t communicate as much as they used to; email is so efficient that communication has decreased.


It is more efficient to contact people across the globe; there is no “long distance” cost of sending an email to another country, and time differences do not matter.


Conversations can be asynchronous; discussions can continue at the convenience of each party instead of all at once.
