Remember all the notices that e-mail was going away? More and more prominent techies kept saying it. Kids aren’t using it. They’re texting.
Well, guess what? Market research company MarketTools claims that just the opposite is happening. Email is rising. Texts are falling. Why? Well, one theory is that e-mail is being used like texts now anyway. They’re pushed to your phone the second they’re sent. Plus, you can manage your e-mail on your desktop. Texts are harder to manage, thread, send to multiple users and more.
It does need to be pointed out that this survey only included tech professionals and students 18 years and older. So, maybe this study is simply ignoring the group that’s going to change everything.
