    With the rapid development of technology, some people believe that face-to-face communication will be totally supplanted by other ways of communicating through the Internet. [Crack IELTS with Rob] In my opinion, I strongly disagree with this statement.


    From a security perspective, the Internet communication is not completely secure and can be secretly accessed by hackers and sometimes government organisations. To illustrate, in 2020, NSA was found to have been reading all emails and listening to numerous phone calls of American citizens, and even in 2021, the phone of the German prime minister was also found to be tapped by the CIA. Moreover, hundreds of security holes have been found during the last few years. [Crack IELTS with Rob] Although most of them have been fixed quickly, security experts believe that numerous messages of Android users and Windows users have been read by hackers. These two examples prove that if any important conversations are online, they are at risk of being hacked and consequently, face-to-face communication is the only solution for this problem.


    Another point that makes face-to-face communication irreplaceable is physical contact. When people meet each other face-to-face, they not only talk but also touch each other, such as handshakes or hugs, which better enhance their conversations. [Crack IELTS with Rob] In addition, meeting face-to-face can create real feelings that online chatting simply cannot create. For example, some people can share their thoughts on various problems as well as their feelings with friends by messaging while they would feel embarrassed doing so when they meet face-to-face. Finally, online meetings are clearly not as formal as face-to-face, as in-person meetings will clearly show more respect for the other people, and the trips of high-ranking officials to foreign countries are clear examples of that since there would be no online meetings between countries’ leaders.


    In conclusion, despite the advance in technology, I believe that face-to-face communication will still play an important role in people’s lives. [Crack IELTS with Rob]
