Re: It's the 21st Century: Outside of Work, Email is dead

@R Soles I would say that FB and Twitter etc. have a strong vested interest in creating an image in which their messaging services are seen as more fashionable than email. Because they make money from users that way. Systems like Email ( and FAX for that matter) just work. They do a good job, functional, efficient, effective. But no one can exploit them to sell on to advertisers.
