When using Facebook Messenger, it is very easy to have miscommunication. For instance, when communicating with your friends, they could be using what is known as texting language. Texting language is the shortening of words into abbreviations used for faster responding and communication. Texting languages can contain surface errors. Surface errors are considered to be different types of misspellings, punctuation problems, grammar errors, and the inconsistent use of abbreviations and/or capitalization issues (Johnson, et al., 2015, Pg. 29). Surface errors can cause miscommunication due to the possibility of a misunderstanding to the person on the receiving end. Not everyone understands texting language and it is important to remember that when communicating through Facebook Messenger. It is important to remain consistent with communication with others to prevent miscommunication. It is important to use proper grammar, spelling, non-texting language, and capitalization (Johnson, et al., 2015, Pgs. 31-32). It is important to use comas because they help to prevent run-on sentences and helps to identify complete sentences (Johnson, et al., 2015, Pgs. 35-36). When communicating via Facebook Messenger, it is important to remember that not everyone understands texting language and it is imperative to use proper writing skills to ensure proper communication.
