Is SMS the New Email?
I just had a thought.
Is SMS the new email?
I mean this in both a positive and negative light.
Admittedly I am a huge SMS user and I USED to be a big email user. Why am I no longer a big email users?
Because the more I used it, the more emails I got and the harder it became to manage.
This morning I awoke to six text messages from friends overnight. Today, between 8am and noon, I received ten. I haven’t responded to any of them yet, just like most of the email is received today.
So with all of the buzz about the “mobile future” it is only a matter of time before SMS will become just like email – spammy, auto-generated, impersonal and overwhelming?
At least SMS was useful for a few years (and hopefully a few more)…
