Philippines still text messaging champ -US study
GMANews.TV - Thursday, August 19

US-based technology and social media news blog Mashable.com today released an infographic detailing text messaging trends in the US and around the world, aggregated from various news sources. Perhaps not surprisingly, the Philippines continues to be the text messaging capital of the world.

Citing collated data from Reuters, the New York Times, CTIA.org, UPI.com, Pew Research, Kvue.com, Matzav.com, and Portio Research, the infographic showed that, in 2009, the average Filipino mobile subscriber sent an average of 600 text messages per month, or 43 percent more than their US counterparts.

"SMS statistics vary widely by source, but the trends and comparisons are generally consistent," researcher Shane Snow noted.

"The cost of a cell phone and SMS plan compared to that of a computer and a broadband connection has made texting extremely popular in developing countries, and “unlimited messaging" plans have made it the communication medium of choice for teens everywhere (beating face-to-face conversation and e-mail in popularity)," he explained. - GMANews.TV

For my opinion, this is a great opportunity for all who engage or who want to engage in ELOAD BUSINESS. Imagine how text addict Pinoys are. Pinoys really love to communicate.
