Read Receipts for Text Messages: Stalkery or Useful?
Text messages are a large part of the way we communicate with each other these days. Honestly, it's my preferred method for carrying on conversations and asking and answering questions, as I've grown to hate talking on the phone with most people. This is not to insult my friends, who I love very much, but why stop what I'm doing (pause Netflix, usually) to talk to you when we can just as easily get stuff done while talking with our fingers via our phones? Maybe I'm just old fashioned.
