In a new Harris Interactive survey of 2300 adults, it was found that 74% say that the phone is still how they primarily keep in touch with friends. Â And 81% said that the phone is their preferred method for keeping up with family members.
13% use video chat (ala Skype) to talk with family members, 9% to talk to friends, and just 6% to talk with their significant other.
When it comes to work colleagues though, the preference is email: Â 43% like email for that use, 33% use voice, 12% would text, and just 6% use social networking sites to correspond with co-workers.
So… what’s your preferred method of communication?
My guess is that if they skewed the study to 13-20 year olds, it would have a vastly different outcome. Â I think texting and social media (ala Facebook) would be tops.
