People are more dependent on technology these days. With technology, people become less diligent and prefer to do something in short and simple way; communication for example. I agree that people will lose their ability to communicate with others face to face because the raise of technology such as computers and mobile phones. This will make people do more writing than speaking, thus their communication skill are sinking.
People who communicate through text and chat messenger on computers and mobile phones are used to do more writing rather than speaking. So that when they have a face to face conversation with someone, they will have difficulty on expressing their idea directly because as we write, we can fix our sentence by add some suitable words or delete inappropriate words. While speaking is more spontaneous, we cannot change the words that we spoke. Moreover, people are prefer to communicate with someone virtually because sometimes the people that we want to communicate with in person are not as friendly as they are in virtual chatting so when those two people meet, they will have an awkward moment.
On contrary, technology makes people get closer easily because we can still keep in touch with someone who live far miles away. With computers and mobile phones, we can communicate with people from different cultures and increase our communication skill by having conversation with them either through texting or video chatting.
In conclusion, I believe with more people communicating virtually using communication devices will endanger their ability to communicate with others face to face. Because it will makes people not used to express their idea spontaneously and correctly.
