But within 100 years we invented words. Yet we still use symbols. Some we need, others we just use for fun.
However, in the last 15 years, our rate of using symbols has increased significantly compared to the previous 10 years.
There may be more than one reason for this change, but the main one is obvious: the Internet.
Before the Internet, our communication was face to face. However, with the development of communication technologies, the prices of advanced technology equipment have become cheaper. Mini equipment that ordinary people can afford has become widespread and our communication habits have started to change.
Even though our language and words are still strong, we started to need more symbols in instant written communication.
In the 2010s there was no longer any need for texting. Every phone had a front camera. Video conversations could be made. However, people found texting more comfortable.
And video chat has not been that popular.
