How Many Emails Did You Send Yesterday?
A Journal article yesterday on the end of email’s reign has generated more than 170 comments from readers agreeing and disagreeing with its points.
The argument of the article was that, while email is still growing, new forms of messaging and interaction are changing how we communicate.
Readers repeatedly stressed that email was not “fading into the sunset,” in the words of Joe from Texas. “If this were a ‘tweet’ I would only have room to say: “You are full of it”!”
A few were keen on the other extreme. “I haven’t had a personal email address since I joined Facebook in 2005,” remarked one reader in an email response.
