In this day and age, it seems there are endless amounts of technology being introduced to facilitate our lives, bring us closer to our work and never miss a single beat of information. One of the first introductions to the wave of the communication realm directed at everyday users is the “e-mail”. Okay sure, by now all of us (or at least a vast majority of us) know and use email like it’s no big deal, but this infografic by Sample E-mails gives us a look at how the world views and utilizes email as part of their daily lives.
With a reported 57% of users spending half their working day on their email, many people take email security very seriously, not only in protecting their information but also in sifting through the spam mail that consists of 90% of their incoming emails. In fact of the thousands of junk mail we may receive within a year, about 63% of spam regards sex or dating. And interestingly enough, 17% of people change emails every six months, and 30% change it annually. That sure is a lot of new passwords to take care of!
Yet what caught my attention the most is that “80% of consumers find reading marketing emails on their mobile less easy than on a PC”. Now, while this may seem obvious to some people, I think it’s interesting to see how even though so many gadgets exist out there luring us in to a seemingly more organized and technological lifestyle, not always do people easily adapt to these newer methods.
Question: Do you think mobile phones apps are facilitating the working industry or just burdening people from having to deviate from what they are comfortable with?
