Protected: Instant Messaging: Part 1

Individuality. In instant messaging sentences are primarily non-existent and even fragments would be too much to ask from conversations. Every person, through time, develops their own style. Style being not only the individual’s grammar but also one’s mood and tone (which are conveyed in the choosing of words and symbols). In this manner an identiy is created, and one grows to believe that he/she is in an individual, for he/she is not following a convention. Yet that is not the case. The moment one talks to someone with a different style, he/she eventually adopts something off of that person. It may be a word or a phrase, but something is always left behind.
