Americans Still Call More Than Text?!

Sometimes it seems like texting is the main way we stay in touch these days.  Nope.  According to a new survey, the PHONE CALL still wins out.

 

 

56% of us say calling someone is still the preferred way to communicate.  And texting is a distant second at 25%.

 

 

Texting IS more popular for people aged 18 to 34 though.  But when they're getting in touch for something important . . . like a birthday . . . 67% of young people DO opt for a phone call, compared to 71% of people overall.

 

 

The survey also found that 51% of us have been DISAPPOINTED to get a text instead of a call.

 

 

64% have misinterpreted what someone meant to say in a text.

 

 

And the person guys call the most often is their wife or girlfriend.  While women call their kids more than anyone else.
