Before you answer, no, shh. Do people actually still use email?
I’m just curious. Ranted about it enough before, but now I’m just wondering if people still actively use email. Yeah yeah, we all fill our addresses in when we need to register someplace that wants to send us emails, or maybe you’d like a weekly digest delivered to your inbox every Saturday morning. But do y’all do anything with it besides that? Let’s keep it a bit trickier here and assume you’re not doing any professional biz, ’cause this is your personal address we’re talking about, not your firstname.lastname@example.org address.
If I had to guess I’d say most people do still check their inboxes when they have new mail, but those messages are rarely paid attention to. After all it’s mostly just generic newsletters, registration emails and spam, right? Most communication has moved onto social media and other “shorter” tools, to name ’em that way. I can go on and on about that, but let’s spare y’all the discomfort.
Do you still regularly use your email? Do you still send things to people, contact them, whatever? Or has all that been delegated to other media and is your inbox starting to look more and more like your mailbox, full of junk you flip through but never really pay attention to? I can’t exactly ask for hard statistics, so anecdotes will do fine. Seriously, let me know!
Maybe I’m exaggerating all this a bit. Who knows, we’ll see.
