“Email is dead.” This notion that email was on the way out has been around since we did the first E-Expectations study years ago. The conventional wisdom has been that, as teenagers embraced text messaging and social media, they would leave email behind.
The reality is quite different, however. The E-Expectations project has charted email use and preferences among college-bound high school students for years, and while there is a slight reduction in email usage, it is still frequently used by the vast majority of students.
