Chinese Are World's Most Active Texters
Move over Philippines, here comes China. Of China’s wired citizens, nearly 70 percent are regularly using text messaging compared to just 56 percent using e-mail. Compare that to the US where 91 percent are using e-mail and just 39 percent are actively texting. 33 billion short messages a month are being sent by China’s 530 million cell phone users. That’s about more than 6 messages sent for every person on the planet.
