Changesin the way of communication
Asthe internet is developing so rapidly, the way of communication keeps changingsurprisingly. New applications on communicaticxi and new social skills emergeabundantly, contributing to the fact that people* s lifestyle has been changedsubstantially as well.
Thechanges in the way of communication can be listed as follows.Rrst of all,people used to prefer talking to each other face to face. However, with socialnetworking applications becoming increasingly popular, people are graduallyused to communicating wrth others online.

At present, with the popularization of socialnetworking apps, the cost of texting or calling friends and relatives is muchcheaper than before. Besides, internet slang is more commonly used in people' sdaily life.
