Primitive Facetime

3rd World Facetime

Before we say anything about 'this is stupid' I'd just like to note that I have seen people at opposite ends of a bar texting each other.

I was thinking about video phones, how we now have them and it's even EASY and it doesn't actually cost you anything extra, and we kind of don't like it and don't use it. This seems odd to me, but it does make sense when you think about having to control your facial expressions. It's like the phone is a limited amount of contact and maybe that limit ameliorates a part of the social anxiety of talking to people in general.
