Pew Delves Into Our Calling and Texting Habits

How do you like to communicate? Pew Research recently asked a representative sample of American adults cell phone owners who send and receive text messages how they preferred to be contacted on their cell phone. The result, according to Pew’s latest report, “Americans and Text Messaging,” was that 31% said they preferred text to talking on the phone, while 53% said they preferred voice calls. Another 14% said their preferred contact method depended on the situation. Not surprisingly, heavy text users are much more likely to prefer texting to talking. The report went on to find that young adults are the most avid textures by wide margin, while both texting and calling for the adult population who use cell phones has remained the same since 2010.
