Discussion on: The danger of Slack

Slack is good, slack is great.

It's undeniably fun and so slick that it's easy to forget you're at work.

In that perspective, there are some misuses, and I agree with you, it can be really noisy.

Besides, I think some people should use emojis and irony more sparingly. It's sometimes pretty hard to understand all the jokes because there are only emojis and implicit meanings.

They 'd probably rather do that "in real life" or during video calls. I've seen so many misunderstandings because of that.

That's why I tend to prefer short phone/video calls. The good news is that it's totally possible with slack.
