Texting is catching on with adults. In some cases parents pick it up in order to communicate with their text happy kids. In other cases, adults are realizing the value of quick non-verbal mobile communications, particularly in the case of professionals that may often be in a situation where they can’t take a phone call. One humorous note is that texting really should catch on big with adult males. We don’t particularly like to chat anyway, so this is great way to avoid another conversation.
The article provides a glossary of commonly used texting abbreviations, most of which I didn’t know. My favorite that I plan to start using immediately is MTFBWY: May the force be with you.
