“It may seem like everyone, everywhere is sending text messages these days. But according to a Forbes report, texting may be on the decline across various countries.
Tero Kuittinen, a senior analyst at M.G.I. Research, wrote via a blog post for Forbes that certain times during the holidays that usually bring in a lot of texts, such as Christmas Eve and Christmas, were significantly lower in 2011 compared to the year before. The decline may hint at signs that consumers are finding new ways to send messages to friends and family.
