SMS Continues to Grow

According to the International Telecommunication Union five billion people will use mobile phones in 2010, sending a total of 2.3 trillion text messages.

Text messaging has surpassed face-to-face contact, email, phone calls and instant messaging as the primary form of communication for US teens, according to a 2009 survey from the Pew Research Center’s American Life Project.

Email use was the lowest – only 11 per cent of teens said they use it every day to interact with friends, compared with 54 per cent who said they text daily and 30 per cent who said they use landline phones.
