US texting is still growing

In the US the number of people that text constantly no matter what they are doing be it driving or sitting in the office is staggering. Texting is still on the rise in the US, but in other countries, the use of text messaging is on the decline it seems.

One of the countries where texting is on the decline is Finland. On Christmas Eve carrier, Sonera saw a decline in the number of text messages sent when 2011 is compared to 2010. On Christmas Eve 2011, there were 8.5 million text messages sent and on Christmas Eve 2010, there were 10.9 million sent. That is a significant change.

Texts are also reportedly falling in Hong Kong with a decline of 14% on Christmas Day compared to 2010. The reason for the decline in texting is said to be services like Facebook, Twitter, and BBM. Those services let users send test messages to each other with no phone needed.
