It’s hard to believe texting has been around for almost three decades. As in many ways it still feels like a fairly modern technology. However, the first ever text message was sent on 3-12-92 (when Neil Papworth of Sema Group wished Richard Jarvis of Vodafone a “Merry Christmas”.) This means for some of your clients, it’s safe to say, that text messaging has been available their entire life.
Today 5 billion people around the world have the means to send and receive SMS text messages, and it’s plain to see that many people are glued to their phones pretty much all day every day, as they multi-task juggling their normal day-to- activities. In fact according to up-to-date statistics, worldwide we send an gargantuan 23 billion text messages each and every single day.
People not only exchange text messages with friends, family and colleagues, of course they also use texting to communicate with their doctors’ surgeries, banks and mini cabs – in fact the list is endless. So why shouldn’t they receive text messages from their solicitors?
