WaPo reports that, among preteens, online communication is replacing talking on the telephone as the preferred means of communication among friends. Further, AOL posits that instant messaging will outpace e-mails by 2005.
Very interesting…it allows for easier multi-tasking. They can watch TV, IM, and do homework all at once becaue IMing is not a conversation that requires complete attention at all times like a phone conversation.
Well, let’s say IMs will outpace legitimate emails by 2005, which will be about 6 percent of the total email volume.
All the rest is spam.
