ISP TalkTalk conducted research by interviewing users of the network. From the total number of young people surveyed, only half said that email is their preferred type of communication. Extinction of an e-mail, experts say, is connected with the fact that vast majority of network users constitute children, adolescents and adults, but not the elderly people. E-mail is used by older people for whom this type of networking is familiar and comfortable.
Instant messaging – that is, on what will be held on modern network communication. Millions of people use the relevant services, preferring just them, but not SMS and email. Many researchers believe that short text messages and e-mail will cease their existing within a generation. Indeed, the sending of messages through social networks or various instant messengers is much cheaper than SMS.
Experts, that are assessing the situation, give us examples of the UK. In this country the number of sent SMS and e-mail will be reduced by 20 percent over the next two years.
