Texting On The Decline
A new report shows that America’s cell phone users are cutting back on texting as the U.S. posts a decline in text messaging for the first time.
FOX News Radio’s Bill Vitka reports:
For the first time, there’s a texting drop. The tech firm Sharma Consulting says that in the last quarter, the number of messages and message revenue both fell.
The average number of texts falling from 696 to 678. The same trend has already been underway in other countries: in the Philippines, Netherlands, Spain and China.
Some of that is economic. But in the U.S., there may be a different reason: other services such as Apple’s iMessage, Twitter, Facebook, and the BlackBerry Messenger. All of which give us an alternative.
