Texting has become an indispensable medium of communication today. Many people simply cannot live without text messaging, and the convenience that it brings to our lives is incomparable. Most, if not all, think of their cell phone as an essential daily tool that they can never go out without, and its importance has become very apparent with the never-ending production of new cell phones that are popping onto the market today.
SMS, which stands for short messaging service, refers to the short text messages that are being exchanged through cell phones. Several years ago, this term covered only text messages but now it also includes messages that contain all sorts of media – from images, sounds, and videos. Now more commonly called as MMS, these messages are important tools of communication and provide people with easier and faster dissemination of information.
Texting today is not only used for personal communication purposes where one cell phone user can pass on a message in limited characters to another via a cell phone. Because of its prevalence and the huge number of people that it has access to, texting is now commonly used to distribute information such as news updates, promotional offers and other forms of marketing and information sharing. Businesses also use text messaging for practical business purposes such as confirming deliveries, instant communication between client and service provider and many more.
Texting has a number of uses that are starting to shape the world today. From carrying mission-critical information, to content delivery, donations and even entertainment uses (e.g. TV voting). It has become a powerful tool that is used by a variety of companies, charities and business organizations today.
