Why is Text Messaging So Popular?

    Ever since text messaging was invented, it has proven to be very popular, but I wonder why that is, as it is a step backwards, technologically-speaking, from telephone calls.

    It takes more time to type a text message than it does to speak, and text messages cannot convey tone of voice, so what benefit could they possibly offer over a normal telephone call? What does everyone else say about this?

    Seems to me you can send a text, and even if that person is busy, they can then respond at some later time when they aren't busy.

    It also slows down conversations so that people have time to formulate thoughts.

    You can send nudes via text.

    You can have group texts.

    You can go back over a text message for information conveyed, such as addresses, telephone numbers, important names, etc.

    A text is also less intrusive. You can communicate without interrupting a person's life, and they can ignore you as long as they want.

    Texts aren't formal papers so not really.

    "U up?"
    "Ye"
    "Wanna fk?"
    "K"
    "Cool"

    Phone would still be ringing as this exchange concluded.

    Text is far better for the average person and the average situation.

    -emojis
    -sexting
    -vids
    -regular pics
    -no annoying ringing
    -read in places where taking a call would be inappropriate
    -read and respond at your own leisure

    It makes it easier to cheat.

    GF: Hey bae, why aren't you answering? Where you at?

    GF: Omg I love you too <3<3<3<3

    Not exactly the same, but I've noticed at former jobs that older bosses always want you to call when an email would work just fine. I'd rather not play phone tag and it's better to have certain exchanges in writing so you can look back if a miscommunication occurs.

    I'd say communication in it's pure form died when Telephones were invented let alone Cell phones.
