This week, I’ve read several articles about Zoom fatigue. Apparently, it’s a thing. I don’t mean to single out Zoom; it’s all video chatting services, and it’s easy to understand why.
Video is a high-focus activity (as opposed to audio, which is very low focus; you can drive, exercise, read, watch video, mute your microphone and have another conversation, etc.). When you’re involved in an interactive video, that is all you can do. It’s like being in a one-to-one meeting, only worse, because you never know when your boss, client, or other person to whom you should not show disrespect, is looking directly at you.
Conference calls are a mainstay in business, but what about when we just want to talk to someone? Recent studies have found that people prefer phone calls over online chats and other forms of communication. Why? It may be because phone calls allow for more personal interactions.
It’s time to evolve some video chatting etiquette. Shorter durations, better agendas, signals that it’s OK turn off your camera, appropriate ways to mute your mic without insulting your host (or getting fired). We need this for work and for life.
Most people would love to just have a conference call, but it’s not always easy to set one up. In this article, we’ll look at some of the reasons why conference calls can be difficult to set up, and some tips on how to make them easier.
Conference call has become a popular way to have a conversation. However, not everyone wants to use this service. Some people prefer to have face-to-face conversations because it is more personal. A recent study found that people who use conference calls are less happy than those who don’t.
Remember, you don´t use a screw driver to knock in a nail – use the right tools for the job. If a call will do, then just pick up your phone.
