Email is Dead(ly)
For years we've been hearing that email is a dying communication tool. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg stated back in 2010. There is too much noise, too much spam and the younger generations would rather text or use other messaging platforms. If that is true, why would research show a growing trend? In 2015, the Radicati Group stated there are over 4.35 billion email accounts and predicted that number will reach 5.59 billion by 2019.
