One-Third of Adults Would Now Rather Have You Text Them Than Call Them

It’s one thing when teenagers say they prefer text messages to phone calls.  They’re teenagers.  They’re supposed to say things like that.  But now, in a bad, bad sign for the future of phone calls we older, more mature adults are saying that we would rather text too.

In a new study by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project, 31% of adults–or nearly one in three–say they’d rather receive a text than a phone call in every situation.

51% are still clinging to phone calls, but that number is shrinking. 14% say that it would depend on the situation whether they prefer a text or call. The study also found that the average adult sends or receives 10 texts every day and makes or receives 12 calls.
