I’m not sure we needed MORE proof that the era of the phone call is over, but here you go.
According to a new survey, the overwhelming majority of people would rather have you TEXT them than call them.
The only exception is people over 55.
72% of people under 39 would rather you text, and so would 61% of people between 40 and 54.
For people over 55, 35% prefer a text, 49% prefer a call.
Also, for what it’s worth, people who prefer calls over texts are almost three times less likely to have smartphones.
