Using technology to communicate emotions? Yes, me too. Its convenience has made it a go to. It's also a great avoidance mechanism being that the idea of having to express yourself seems less and less appealing. Haha
Cons: There's so much that gets lost in translation, and there's no way that a simple emoji can capture all the nuances that surround a "human" interaction. This leads to miscommunication. These superficial connections make it very difficult to relate to and empathize with one another.
What I'm trying to say... lol I prefer to hear a voice when connecting with someone. This pretty much sums up my latest song "Emoji".
