Most people are actually good at texting. It is just that many people don’t have the time to be good at it. That is why the proliferation of texting commercials such as these is a problem. People are being bombarded with text messages to the extent that they don’t have the time to process them. Most of the time, we are just reacting to the text message. Often times, our actions are more important than the text message.
There is a big difference between texting and email. Email is text to text, with pictures and video. Texting is text to text without pictures or videos. The worst part about texting is that it takes up more of our time than email. For example, it takes up a third of my texting time. Of course, I do not read all of the text messages I receive.
That’s why texting is so important. Because we are not just reacting to the text message. We are taking more time to process it. We are actually taking in more information. We are using our phone more than we are using our computer. It’s not just the amount of time we spend on our phone, it is the amount of time spent in between those times.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been annoyed by the fact that I can’t text my mom, but I can tell you that it takes up between 2 and 5 seconds of my texting time. I think to myself, “Gosh, I guess that means I should text my son.” Then I think, “Gosh, I guess that means I should text my daughter.” Then it happens. “Gosh, I guess that means I should text my brother.
It looks like a lot of people think texting is a waste of time, or at the very least it’s not worth it. I disagree. I think texting is a great way to convey quick (and usually funny) messages to people we care about. It’s just that we tend to ignore the messages that we can’t reply to.
It seems like texting is an even greater waste of time when you look at what your friends, family, and colleagues are doing with it. It’s great when you send messages to people you’re actually going to see. But as a rule, texting is better done in an email, which makes it easier to reply to. Texting is also easier to do when you’re in front of your computer screen.
Texting is one of the easiest ways to communicate with a wide range of people, and it is one of the fastest and cheapest ways to get a message out to the public. Unlike email, which is generally a secure method of communication, texting allows messages to be sent to anyone who knows the recipient’s email address.
The downside to texting is that it is a medium that is susceptible to being hacked. This is especially true when youre using cellular (mobile) phones because of the easy accessibility to the public internet. It also can be easier to send a text message when youre in a public place where texting might not be permitted. The good thing is that the best way to protect yourself is to use a secure medium, like email, and to have a reliable method of contact.
So what do you do when you get a text message that seems to come from someone you don’t recognise? Well, you can ignore it and then you can start to think. You might even want to get the person to meet you and let you know why they’ve responded at all. It might be a good idea to call them and ask them what that text means, who they’re texting, and what they were planning to say.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog and have noticed that I’ve been very vocal about the importance of email and texting, I’d like to explain a little further how a secure medium like email and texting can really help. It’s not as simple as just ignoring a text, it’s about using a unique method of contact that lets you know what the message is really saying.
