A recent article in journal of American society of geriatrics says that being present with loved one is more beneficial than just picking phone for chatting.

The survey conducted waves every two years, so researchers were able to follow the participants’ progress over time. The survey measured a wide variety of health and social factors, including how much time a person spent socializing, with whom they spent this time, as well as self-reported signs of depression.

They found that participants who physically met with friends or family at least three times a week were the least likely to report depressive symptoms unlike others who have less interaction with family members.
