Most Americans Know Better Than to Ask Someone Out by Text Message
Americans between the ages of 18 and 27 are more traditional than we thought! According to a new State of the Mobile Web report that surveyed 300,000 people, only 44% of the U.S. residents queried had asked someone out on a date via text. That percentage jumps to 84% for the Chinese and Germans, and 83% for Vietnamese. The study does not report how many of these dates were actually successful. Also, rather insanely, users in the U.S. were the least likely to have ever heard a busy-signal on their phones. Such innocents! [via the Observer][JDoll]
