With busy lives the world is adopting ways by which communication can be as short and apt as possible. Forms of communication such as Whatsapp texts, SMS and emails are gaining quite popularity nowadays. Users can write and send SMS in any language they so prefer, but did you know that SMS messages that end with a full stop are considered less sincere than messages that do not end with full stops?

As per the result of a new study conducted by American researchers, text messages or SMS are perceived to be one of the most frequently used computer-mediated communication (CMC) methods that mimic facial expressions. SMS is also a form of communication which gives rise to a conversation and is therefore considered to be inappropriate when ending with a full stop.

Participants sending SMS to and fro are involved in an exchange of two version conversation where sending short messages with full stops is considered ending their statement with no freedom to allow a contradicting argument to take place. Such an occurrence is considered rude and stubborn by the sender of the message.

When speaking people can easily judge the reaction of the person in front, but conversing through SMS limits their visibility of the person’s reactions and expressions and therefore effects the way a person might intercept the message. Including a full stop in the message might create a grave situation if the receiver intercepts it any negative way.
