Whether is a business meeting or a casual catch up with your friends & family,the number of chats via Zoom -or other audio-visual chats apps- has increased massively during quarantine, but how much do we communicate with our gestures?
Until the video chats appeared, a phone call could have a lot of mystery. The lack of visual contact made some thing easier to manage.
The screens have unveiled the secret behind the voice of a simple phone call, and now we show us as we are and, above all, with all our body language.
That is not neccesarily a bad thing, but what gestures should you look out for from the other person, or yourself, during a video conference?
Unlike the offline mode, in online and video chats, our face is the main, and sometimes only, method in which we transmit our gestures and expressions.
You may not notice someone tapping their feet in nervousness on video chat, but you will see their facial expressions.
