Text Messaging

I’m working on a project for the next 333 that involves text messaging, so of course I decided to do a little research on text messaging in the American culture. I found some pretty cool information! From 2006 to 2008 (my numbers ended in Quarter 2 of 2008) the number of text messages sent overtook the number of phone calls made for the average consumer! Here is that chart…

Also, looking at the trends of the average number of text messages by age group is pretty interesting, although not to surprising!
