Still using e-mail?!

Recommended Posts

On Facebook I have made a wall post asking a question for all of my friends and family to answer as I was curious. The question I asked was "Do you still use e-mail?" and I have received several "no" answers.

Sure text messaging is great, but what everyone needs to remember is that there is many of features isn't in text messaging that are in e-mail and beside e-mail can be used everywhere and not text messaging service because you would have to have a cell phone number to text while e-mail have a address that can be sent anywhere even internationally at no cost and sending text message to anyone that's oversea costs some money.

Anyway, I am wondering if some of you still use e-mail? And do you think that text messaging is overshadowing e-mail now? Share your opinion or even rants about e-mail vs text messaging, go!

I use email all the time; it's much more secure than text messaging and you can attach some pretty large files while you're at it. :P Using email just seems more professional, you know? I use email for support tickets to confirming my purchases online. It's so much easier, and free if you look at it. It costs money to text. :P

Emails will never be replaced by instant-messaging applications or social networks. Personally, I daily check my emails. Email is a secure way to exchange opinions and data. The company which I work for obliges each employee to talk via emails. And I am pretty sure that most of the companies do so. Social networks violate our privacy while instant-messaging applications are not that safe, are they?

Yes, I am still using email! I use Gmail and Gmail is a free email service that everyone can use! It is a brilliant service with a great design and I know how to all the features that this email provider offers to me.

I actually prefer email to texting or messengers. I can easily organize my email into folders and access them anywhere with very little bandwidth used. The same cannot be said about the rest.

I haven't use e-mail to actually have a conversation with someone in so, so long. But nowadays with all the fancy packages you can buy for your phone, you can end up texting internationally with no extra costs. I was able to call/text my dad when he visited Spain from England and it didn't cost me an extra penny. :)

Yes I still use e-mail, but for business/work related stuff only, besides that I use Facebook to keep in touch with family and friends.

Yes I still use email, as it is more reliable than social media and more often nowadays social networks are hiding messages that don’t agree their political point of view.
