The instant messaging, social networks and emails are the stars of all forms of remote communication today, and without a doubt this fact our way of chatting with our friends has changed, bosses, colleagues or family, and also the way we express ourselves.
In fact, it is that the arrival of total connectivity has meant a communication similar to the appearance of the telephone, and As languages adapt to the times, they are also doing it now in our way of speaking on WhatsApp, by Telegram or other similar tools.
And in fact, many times screens and impersonality make it difficult to understand some expressions, some ways of writing or some phrases, implying many times that you are angry when you are not, or making you look like an edge without you even noticing.
It was something that we had already talked about on Andro4all on some occasion, but now We bring you some useful solutions to avoid looking like an edge when talking on WhatsApp and that your interlocutors also understand your expressions and moods. Aren’t you curious to see what you’re doing wrong? Follow us …
When it comes to instant messaging, screens take away the option to show your facial expressions and your feelings, so here are some solutions so that it does not seem that you are angry or you are an edge while chatting with someone
The screens are uninhibited, and be careful because the informal is at ease
Well yes, as the companions of The Conversation commented the humans now we tend to prefer non-contact communication because this reinforces us, gives us security and it makes us more disinhibited, using more expressive and spontaneous language.
This makes us fall into informality, something that does not tend to look good in professional settings now that telework abounds, so strive to maintain courtesy during your conversations by instant messaging, email or social networks.
Check the context and adapt to itbecause if you went to a job interview or had a drink with a friend too you would adapt by presenting yourself one way or another and communicating in different ways depending on the environment and the moment.
This clash of contexts is magnified on the Internet, since impersonality makes it possible for different types of people to coincide in different media, causing you to misbehave or offend someone with a comment out of context for a certain part of your interlocutors. Be careful what you say and what groups you comment on.
Use winks and emoticons, because on WhatsApp you will always seem more unfriendly
Anonymity can certainly make you comment on social media that you would not say in public, or even in your group of friends you could give opinions that you would clarify with a glance or a gesture in a more colloquial environment than a group chat, avoiding appearing unfriendly or an edge.
Be careful with self-control, protect your opinions in measure and be careful with your writingBecause using the period at the end overemphasizes the sentences making you seem more serious than you really want to be.
Use emoticons and winks, an image is worth a thousand words and after a joke or a comment that can be misunderstood, a face with the tongue out will always help to understand your tone and to avoid major problems.
Too more expressive use of words and spelling will help you, the way you string the sentences is key and the longer messages also imply seriousness and antipathy. Never capitalize unless you want to emphasize somethingBecause it looks like you’re screaming.
Spelling and good manners on the Internet
One of the aspects that experts highlight the most is precisely spelling, because writing on a mobile phone implies speed and speed leads us to make infinite mistakes, like eating characters – does anyone remember mnsjt crts? -, do not put accents or punctuate sentences well.

Start to take care of the style and the spelling because it is keyMany job opportunities have been lost because of that, but above all rate your sentences well because if not, it will be difficult to understand you.
In any case, many times good online manners are difficult to understand and carry out, because they are always not only in who writes but also in those who read.
The ideal is take care of our ways to try to avoid misunderstandings, and without a doubt the most important thing is to control the context, maintain a good spelling and gladly use emoticons, memes or and these new ways of communicating our moods and our message tones.
