Often in writing online it is hard to predict what “tone” a person is writing in or in which way a person means something. So when a simple ‘great’ could mean ‘god your boring’ or it could be ‘wow excellent idea’ etc
A simple statement or word could have many meanings. In face to face conversation the tone a person speaks in tells you what context the word or sentence should be taken.
A easy and quick solution to this problem is a good old =) a smiley tells more then your happy it helps people realise what tone you mean to say things in.
Hope everyone understands, I know a =) has gotten me out of a few potential problems.
