      Interactions with technology we tend to miss a lot of the physical cues such as from body language tone of voice. Although emojis can help us had some of these things because they can be interpreted in so many ways it’s still makes It difficult to know the meaning of something. Whereas when you are face-to-face you tend to be able to pick up on these things. Another factor is that lying is a lot easier to do over technology that face-to-face.
