Is email becoming obsolete?
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg seems to think so.
At Nielsen’s Consumer 360 conference on Tuesday, Sandberg said that only 11% of teens use email daily.
“If you want to know what people like us will do tomorrow,” she told a crowded conference hall, “you look at what teenagers are doing today.” She then predicted that email is “probably going away.” “I can’t imagine life without it,” she added.
Really? Isn’t that what they also said that IM would make email irrelevant? This is going to be another one of those future prediction statements that’s going to go down in history like Bill Gate’s “64K RAM” prediction
