DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that an average American checks their phone 46 times per day? Adults consume over 23 hours texting per week while millennials exchanges up to 67 text messages every day. Text messaging is indeed a huge part of our daily lives. We use it a lot for personal, social, or even business purposes and as a result, 15.2 million texts are sent every minute worldwide.
As technology emerges, more and more forms of communications are developed to help us reach out. From sending actual letters to e-mails, text messages, instant messaging, and telecommunications applications. Group chats or group texting is one of the most common ways to communicate recently. Sending group texts or messages is a lot more efficient. It gives us space and allows us to form group conversations which are a lot more fun. If you're wondering how group chats started, Talkomatic is the first public online chat system. It was created by David R. Woolley and Doug Brown at the University of Illinois in 1973. Originally, Talkomatic has several channels that could accommodate up to five people. The messages appear on all users' screens in real time. Now, we have different platforms for group messaging. Best group text apps that are used by many include Slack, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Viber, and a lot more.
