What do you think is the most challenging part of communicating online? Either via smartphone or social media, or even email? What is the most challenging thing for you?

For me, trying to guess the nuance of the communication is the most challenging. Sometimes, when someone posts on social media, it can seem like they are very angry or being sarcastic and so on, but often the person who wrote the post doesn’t feel that way. They thought the post was “fine.”

So that’s the most challenging thing for me – the emotional side and body language information is not there when you are communicating online, so it can be easy to misunderstand people.

How about you?
