Email-Not Cool Anymore
Face it if you are still using email to communicate other than work you are now in the un-cool kids club.
According to a new study, between December of 2009 and December of last year, the amount of email use by people aged 12 to 17 dropped 59%. For 25 to 34 year olds, it dropped 18%.
In fact, email use dropped for every age group . . . except people over 55. People 55 to 64 spent 22% more time emailing. For people 65 and over, email use went up 28%.
Instead of emailing, younger people prefer to communicate, well, every other way. Except actually talking to each other, naturally. Facebook, instant messaging, social media, and texting all went up as email use went down.
