I’m pleased I’m not the only one who has come to this conclusion. My overall experience is that the better the client, the less communication they need. The more picker and more hard to please the client (usually, because they don’t know what they want), the more communication they need.
There is also a security risk. In the past, clients who wanted voice chats, etc, wanted to chat via that S platform which rhyms with hype. Doing that meant handing over your contact details.
Now a lot of people want to communicate via apps linked directly to your phone number or email. This means blindly sharing a lot of personal information with complete strangers online.
