The use of text messages is continuing to grow in popularity, according to Ofcom Communications. Their market report showed that the average adult sends 200 texts per month, more than double their previous findings four years ago.
Mobile phone conversations dropped last year after showing a gradual rise. This could indicate that people are finding it hard to make the time for a phone call.
More than half the adults in the survey say they use text messages at least once a day to communication with family and friends, while only 49 percent meet people face to face on a regular basis.
47 percent speak to close relations or friends on a mobile phone every day.
According to the report, the time spent talking on a mobile phone is down from 125 billion minutes in 2010 to 124 billion last year. Calls made on landlines continued to drop, by 10 percent since the last survey took place.
