70% Prefer SMS to Email
- By: Michael SchulteNov 5, 2007
Move over Philippines, here comes China. The Philippines, long known for being the country where texting is king, is being usurped by China. Of China's wired citizens, nearly 70 percent are regularly using text messaging compared to just 56 percent using e-mail. Compare that to the US where 91 percent are using e-mail and just 39 percent are actively texting. 33 billion texts a month are being sent by China's 455 million cell phone users. That's about 6 messages sent for every person on the planet.
