Why Email No Longer Rules… and what that means for the way we communicate

Email has had a good run as king of communications. But its reign is over.In its place, a new generation of services is starting to take hold — services like Twitter and Facebook and countless others vying for a piece of the new world. And just as email did more than a decade ago, this shift promises to profoundly rewrite the way we communicate — in ways we can only begin to imagine.We all still use email, of course. But email was better suited to the way we used to use the Internet — logging off and on, checking our messages in bursts. Now, we are always connected, whether we are sitting at a desk or on a mobile phone. The always-on connection, in turn, has created a host of new ways to communicate that are much faster than email, and more fun.
