Abstract

The present study was conducted on 170 randomly selected class XI students of various
schools of Chandigarh to show the relationship between online text messaging and face to
face communication. The scales on face to face communication and text messaging were
constructed and validated by the investigators themselves. The result indicated that with the
increase in online text messaging by the students of class XI, their face to face communication
decreases.
