How Textually Active Are You? [Infographic]

We’re a nation of texters—in 2010, some 188 billion texts were being sent every month, up from 14 billion back in 2000. Despite significant advancements in messaging technology, we keep going back to texting. About 69 percent of survey respondents said they “would be lost” without texting. Is this all healthy? There is concern we may damage our relationships as a result of texting and other technologies. Texting does not adequately communicate feeling, body language, tone or subtle inflections.

Your punctuations communicate a great deal when you’re texting. A period, for example, might indicate that you’re ready to end a conversation. Exclamation points signal excitement, playfulness or desperation. Semicolons should probably be reserved for an english paper—it probably means you’re overthinking this. It implies that you’ve probably thought about this, agonized over it, edited and revised your text.
