Want to know how your email usage stacks up?
The results of our informal email survey provide some food for thought (though clearly not much science). Inspired by a Journal article earlier this week entitled “Why Email No Longer Rules,” we asked readers to tell us how many emails they sent on Monday, and a little bit about themselves. They could respond by email, commenting on Digits, or Twittering. Here’s what we learned from our 48 respondents.
Averaging the responses together, readers sent an average of 32 emails on Monday.
Here’s how the results broke down by response method. Readers who emailed in their responses sent slightly more than the average (38 emails). Those who responded to our survey by commenting sent slightly fewer emails on Monday (26 emails).
