Email usage drops 59 percent amongst teenagers
According to a new comScore report on digital trends, email usage has significantly declined, especially amongst teenagers.

From December 2009 to December 2010, overal web email usage declined 8 percent, dragged down by a 59 percent decline among teens aged 12-17.



Users aged 18-24 saw the smallest year-over-year decline, at just 1 percent, while usage among 25-35 year olds fell 18 percent. Usage by 35-44 year olds fell 8 percent and the 45-54 demographic saw a 12 percent decline.

Older people helped buoy the fall, as 55-64 year olds increased usage 22 percent and the 65 and older crowd saw 28 percent growth.

Most of the share lost by email usage, was found by social networking, especially among teens.

    I rather e-mail so I don't have to feel force to respond right away to the person who just sent me a text message or waste my time reading tweet messages.

    Honestly if you have time to read or follow tweet messages, your life must not be that interesting to have to follow someone else, get off the couch and do something.

    Texting..........what's that?? Thought it was replaced by the ever popular sexting. GO KIDS!!!!

    If I had chicks sending me sexts.........I'd be thrilled as punch and gettin' a different P.O.A. daily.


    What a shame that mommy and daddy are so naive and willing to pay for the ridiculous price of unlimited texting packages for their F-up children.

    E-mail is not free from your phone unless you have a data plan. Texting is easier, faster, and more practical for teenagers. That's why they're all doing that instead. I hardly ever email anyone. I either text them, call them (Skype or cell), or Facebook em.
