Skype, Google+ and Oovoo are great ways to use the Internet to talk face to face. Sometimes just seeing a face along with a voice is what does the trick. Video chatting can be done almost anywhere, which is ever so important for those overseas moves.
Another popular choice is keeping in touch via social media. Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr alike you can share photos, snippets of your life and things that interest you. You and your friend can see what’s going on even if you cant talk or text on the phone.
Phone and text
By far the easiest way to keep lines of communication open is calling and texting details of your day or things you want to vent about. Communication is key and with today’s mobile technology it can happen anytime anywhere.
Call me old fashioned, but it’s always nice to get a postcard or handwritten letter. It really says that a person took the time and effort and was thinking about you. Care packages in the mail are also very nice.
If you both have Iphones, Apple has a wonderful app called Facetime. It’s a type of video conferencing, but can be done on the go without having to be tied to a computer.
