With all the communication technology we have today, do you keep in touch with your out of state or instate relatives all the time? The communication. I use is text, email & phone. I am not on facebook or anything else, there are a few instate relatives that i keep in touch with at times.

I was never close with the majority of my relatives. However, the few that I am close with, communication is primarily done through phone (calls, text messages) and Internet (e-mail, Facebook, and Skype).

I do not use Facebook.  Yes texting is quicker than speaking but I am noticing more and more people do not answer texts immediately or even at all.  Kind of irritating because most people have their phones glued to their hand all the time.

I keep in touch by phone (I do not have a cell phone ) unless it's a quick question then I send an email.

   With all the new communication technologies, 
    it is difficult to keep in  touch with them because
    they keep moving constantly.

All family is within driving distance so we call or text and try to get together once a month for dinner.  The nieces and nephews use technology to update each other but my sisters and I talk once a week

No I do not.  As I can call them, so too can they call me.  But my folks are lazy and never bother.

I'm in touch with my family almost daily, in person, by text, email, and social media.  They are my people.

 The main way I communicate with family and friends is by text and or phone. Occasionally I use email.
 I use  text  for a question or two. Phone calls for a more lengthy conversation  :rainbow: :peace:wave:

I am old fashioned,  I rarely communicate by social media.  I pick up the phone or send a handwritten note!

For me it's texts and email mainly.  Not really a phone person.  Just don't like talking on the phone much.

I do call a couple of my older sisters up on a regular basis to make sure they are doing ok.  (My five older sisters are in their 70's and 80's).  I call my brothers up now and then too.  Other than that, I may text.  Occasionally, I still use the mail. - Regular postal service, that is.
