More than 50 percent increase of texting for the last year
The U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistical Abstract also known as "Uncle Sam's Almanac" has been published since 1878 and it’s also the best-selling reference book. According to its latest issue, the number of text messages sent on cell phones has more than doubled, from 48 billion to 110 billion in the last year. Non-verbal communication sure is thriving nowadays… Anyway, besides that particular fact, you can also find other interesting information in the book, like the decay of daily newspapers or something for the college freshmen enrolled in-state in 2006.
