Does anyone check their email anymore?
If you ask me, “Only for work purposes.”
If you ask my dad, “Of course I use email!”
My reason to neglect the email inbox: Facebook and Twitter.
“Who needs email?” My Yahoo account is unlimited; I am now at 8, 763 unread emails. I’m not proud, just too uninterested in seeing who still communicates through such archaic means.
My dad’s reason:
<Having just recently mastered the skill of electronic mail> “Facebook is too impersonal!”
My need for email is personal:
#2 my dad… who refuses to catch up with the current mode of instant communication.
Do you prefer email or Facebook/Twitter?
