A new survey asked people under 40 if they could only keep the phone app or the messaging app, which one would they want?
73% picked texting over calling
I would pick texting over calling. It’s easier and sometimes, I just don’t want to talk on the phone. However, there are times when you just want to hear a person’s voice, so that would be hard, but it’s a good thing that I don’t have to choose in real life!
Here are a few more results from the survey:
-74% of us communicate with people digitally more than we do face-to-face.
-70% of us sleep with our phone within an arm’s reach and 52% of us check it if we wake up briefly in the middle of the night.
-42% have no problem with texting during family dinner and 28% have no problem texting while they’re having a conversation with someone else.
We try to refrain from being on our phones during dinner. I believe that’s family time and we need to engage with one another and leave technology out of it.
