Here are some facts: not everyone can surf the internet because not everyone has access to it; not everyone checks their emails and many emails are left unread and in the spam folder; not everyone opens their letter box; brochures and flyers oftentimes head straight to the trash can; not everyone watches TV, especially with work and online streaming services; not everyone has the time to read newspapers and magazines; and not everyone listens to the radio.
But 98 percent of people read their SMS. Surveys also suggest that most people have their phones by their side all day long, and that it’s one thing they can’t live without. The short message system is definitely one of modern time’s best communication channels, and it’s firmly ingrained in 21st century mobile culture.
And with the Philippines being the undisputed texting capital of the world, the mobile phone definitely has a deeper meaning for Filipinos. With over 80 million cell phone users out of our almost 100 million population, we’re sending 1 billion texts each day and spending PHP 15 billion for prepaid load each month.
