    Default Do ppl really text message anymore?

    I don't know about anyone else but my phone has never been so quiet! Recently when I start a conversation (well try to) I get a response or two but then nothing! If I receive a message it's basically the same damn scenario I get a hello, i say "How are you?" Then nothing! There's also the very one sided conversations you know the the kind the "Hey what are you wearing, got pictures?" I'd like to have chatter again, I'd like to find out what ppl are up to, and be able to ask some questions for a change or at least answer ones that don't make my skin crawl. I'm 35 and live in Washington state I think we cld build on that... Lol!

    Sometimes my phone never seems to stop with texts. There were a couple days about a month ago where I was getting sick of my notification. I think more people are communicating through Facebook. Even though I can't wait for the day that Facebook dies.

    Default Re: Do ppl really text message anymore?

    I honestly will be the very last person to join FB. It would probably take some gun pointing and a kidnapped family member to make me join and even then it would depend on which family member.

    What's this talk about FB? Come on folks, get going with Google+! Works so much better on your Android phones, and Hangouts is a great way to stay in touch.

    Just wait until Zuckerberg decides to put ads on the desktop, and mobile sites. There was even a rumor of it going on Home.

    I agree with this. I think that they are mostly ads now.
    I used ad block plus for Facebook and disable it for sites that I think deserve the money.
    Sorry Facebook, I don't like you enough

    I was thinking the same. I text one friend most of day, but Facebook everyone else. Maybe tides are turning a bit.

    A lot of people are on social media so that's how they correspond. But I agree, I rarely text anymore and use online resources to communicate.

    I definitely agree with ya I just wish we cld be a little less reliant on it. Sometimes if you wanna share something private with someone I'd rather text than pm someone. I don't use Facebook Messenger but you're right if that's what everyone is doing I might have to evolve. My big thing is having to see my news feed. I'm really sick of some of the things my "friends" are droaning on about. Short of deleting or blocking everyone texting wld save a bit of my sanity... Lol.

    Part of it is the generation. Phone's target demographic is the same as Facebook. In fact, I think most smartphone users would need to Google what a rotary phone is....
