How SMS Messaging Is Changing The World [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ads by Google

It’s become the most common form of communication on the planet and the number one occupation of teenagers everywhere. That’s right, I’m talking about text messaging (SMS) which, quite often, is the best way to send someone a short message without getting trapped talking on the phone for ages. Whether it’s keeping in touch with friends and relatives in other countries or texting your partner to request a takeaway, it’s hard to find someone these days who doesn’t know what texting is or who has never done it before.

Our infographic today comes courtesy of Find out the total number of texters in comparison to the world population or the number of Facebook users. Find out the influence mobile phones have on their users and how text messaging has been used for good causes in different countries.

Are you an obsessed texter? If so, how many do you send per day/week/month?  Would you rather text than talk to someone? And do you know of any good causes that texting has been used for? Let us know in the comments!  If you are on the opposite side of the argument and you HATE texting, then don’t hesitate to tell us why in the comments too!
