PLN #25

On the Denver post i came across an article called Keeping up:U spk text?. This articles main point is showing how much text messaging popularity has grown in the last couple of years. One very large number that is mentioned is that 30 billion texts are sent every month that is so much and showing how many people use it every 4 out of 5 people uses text. The big part of this is coming from teens and young adults as mentioned here.

"About 21 percent of all users text daily, compared with 42 percent of 13- to 17-year-olds and 47 percent of those ages 18-24."

Those numbers are very large and show how much a lot of people rely on texting. That is what i think matters is how much people are growing away from phone calls and strictly talk to people using text. It is very much similar to e-mail and instant messaging so people are growing away from those ways and using this great easy way of commutating all the time.I can very much relate this to me cause i text and i know it is just an easy way to talk to people without calling i have noticed that pretty much everyone has a cell phone and very many of these people have texting and you can notice how much people rely on it. This connects to the world because it is a big way of commutating and very simple and you can do anywhere wirelessly.
