Ways to Make FaceTime Screenshots on your Mac and iPhone

There are several ways to communicate with people today. Making a phone call, texting, using chat software which contains emoji, talking face-to-face via FaceTime, etc.

What kind of those communicate methods do you prefer?

For me, I would like to choose face-to-face communicating with my friends or family via FaceTime.

Why is talking face-to-face better than texting or making a phone call?

In my opinion, emotion does not translate online. We have no idea about what the feeling of people who is on the other side of the line while texting or making a phone call is.

While getting into a conversation, I'm more than happy to see the expressions of people through a video chat via FaceTime, not just the voice from a phone call or a text with emoji.
