I get this answer in text a lot, and I suppose it means “yep,” or “yeah,” but I can’t figure out why someone would pronounce it “yup” unless it was like, “yuuuuup,” which seems dismissive or sardonic to me.
I have often thought to myself, however, that they must not mean it that way.
Hello, i am doing my dissertation right now and needed to get some research.I have created a survey for Public relations Practioners to fill out on the topic of social media and how it is changing PR practice.
First we had spoken word. Then writing, then letters and books. Then came roads, trade routes, seaways, a postal service. Then the telegraph, the radio, the telephone, television, and most recently, the internet. Every generation developing a new way to spread ideas and communicate thoughts, each one more radical than the next. It seems that now, in the information age, we finally have the ultimate communications tool: the internet. A worldwide network and platform upon which a multitude of different services are constructed and operated. From Social Networks to Google, and email to live video calls, there are thousands of ways to consume, distribute, and share information. With more than half of the world connected, no generation has ever had such an easy way to communicate with people far and wide. But what comes next?
If history has proven one thing, it's that each advancement in communication will eventually supplant the next in popularity. For example, how many people still listen to the radio to receive the news, rather than turning to a podcast or news feed on Google? How many people still use a landline rather than a cell phone (or call at all when you can text)? And NOBODY watches TV shows on an actual, live TV anymore, we have Netflix on, well, everything, for that.
The question at hand simply is this: what will supplant the internet? What is the next stage in the evolution of communication? When our children's children wake up and want to talk to their friends, what medium will they use? Everything has it's end, what comes next after the internet has had it's run?
I am on Tinder and I find it hard sometimes to connect with strangers via text. How do you get girls, or people in general, to talk about what they like or stuff like that?
In real life I can always 'use' where we are, the way he/she is dressed or what he/she is doing. But when texting I don t have those things.
So my question is: When texting a stranger that you know nothing about, after the conversation started, how do you find things to talk about and how do you connect with that person on a more deeper level?
