Less And Less Email

Is it just me or is there less and less email arriving every day? Maybe I’ve framed that incorrectly. Is there less and less email arriving in your email account? That’s been my experience.

Nowadays I’m much more likely to get email inside Facebook. Good for Facebook, but not good for me.

It is much easier to keep up with email using programs (or systems) designed for email. Facebook’s messaging isn’t.

There is no simple solution. I’m certainly not going to stop reading Facebook messages.

The power of Facebook is immense right now. The power of Geoff is minimal.

  1. The most I get in e-mail is spam and from those closest to me. So yes, it has shrunk.

    With you less fill in my inbox that has substance. Sadly, I would prefer it in my ‘real in’ box….

    I’m with you Geoff..I prefer my regular email where I can control what I keep or don’t keep, and I can organize it by subject or person, whatever makes sense to me.

    I’m tired of Facebook. I read it but, it’s getting tiresome. Got to scroll down past all the stupid people that you don’t want to see them voicing their opinion or bad mouthing someone. Sometimes my son’s words echo in my mind. “Don’t say something on Facebook you wouldn’t yell on a street corner”

    I’m getting less email too and I miss it. It’s harder to concentrate on what someone has written you when you keep hearing bleeps and new stuff keeps coming up. On the other hand, FB keeps me in better touch on a regular basis and I’ve met a lot of wonderful people.

    I’m finding the same thing Geoff. People just do not write the way they used to. Most emails now are advertisements, or spam. I miss writing to people and the way the used to write back. I started using Facebook because I’d email people and the reponse was “come over to Facebook!” So many people really do not answer emails anymore. I really cherish the ones that do!

    Same here! Most of my friends don’t use their email accounts anymore at all, and don’t check them. I have to resort to FB messages to connect with anyone. I hate it.

    George Takei (yes, THAT George Takei), posted a sign last week that said ‘Facebook is like a fridge. You know nothing new is inside but you check it every ten minutes.” I get significantly more spam in my e-mail account since I joined Facebook.
