Would you rather text your friends than talk on the phone?


9th September 2020

ARE you a texter or a talker? A new survey has revealed that most British people prefer to text than make phone calls.

YouGov Profiles data shows that 55% of Brits say they would prefer to receive a text message over a phone call. It seems younger people are the biggest fans of texting, with 72% of people under the age of 40 saying they prefer texts. Some of the reasons people gave for not wanting to speak on the phone included feeling they don’t have very good social skills, verbal skills or a good enough concentration span. What do you think?

I don't have a phone but I would rather talk on the phone or Skype.

I’d rather talk on the phone. When you hear someone speak, you can almost always tell how they’re feeling straight away.

I enjoy texting more as I don't really have to show my feelings

I’d rather text. It’s way more fun because you can send emojis
