So why are people using text? We gathered up a short list of 9 reasons:
  • For simple, factual communications, texting takes less effort. Ex: "I'll be there at 6:00".
  • Text is not obtrusive to those around you (i.e. no speaking aloud, no phone ringing).
  • Doesn't require both parties to be available at the same time to communicate.
  • It's short, so it gets read.
  • No account to create.
  • No app to install.
  • Can be saved and read again.
  • The messages must be concise.
  • Works on all cell phones, not just smartphones.


It's true. People like to communicate via text!
