How often do you use email?
If you’re of a certain age (i.e., an adult) and work in any kind of office environment, chances are that your answer is somewhere between “regularly” and “all the time”. In fact, for the average office worker, email is now so much a part of their day-to-day life that it’s become part of the furniture.
Indeed, compared to social media, which includes, of course, Twitter and Facebook, but also image and chat-led mediums such as Instagram, Snapchat and message apps, electronic mail seems pretty dull. So, are these newfangled technologies ultimately going to mean the end of email, or has the old dog still got some life in it yet?
