Sometimes it seems like texting is the main way we stay in touch these days. Nope. According to a new survey, the PHONE CALL still wins out.
56% of us say calling someone is still the preferred way to communicate. And texting is a distant second at 25%.
Texting IS more popular for people aged 18 to 34 though. But when they're getting in touch for something important . . . like a birthday . . . 67% of young people DO opt for a phone call, compared to 71% of people overall.
The survey also found that 51% of us have been DISAPPOINTED to get a text instead of a call.
64% have misinterpreted what someone meant to say in a text.
And the person guys call the most often is their wife or girlfriend. While women call their kids more than anyone else.
