It's also helpful when there just isn't time to make a phone call or see someone in person, as is often the case.

    So sometimes it's NECESSARY to communicate with technology - but that doesn't always mean that someone PREFERS it. Although I guess what the article is pointing out is that those who actually prefer it tend to have worse emotional functioning.
