Declining voice

Phone call minutes among 18 to 34 year olds have fallen from 1,200 to 900 a month in the past two years while texting has more than doubled from 600 messages a month to 1,400 a month. Only those in their 50s and 60s continue to phone like the old days.
The Washington Post sees the tensions between baby boomers and millennials as a great communication divide. Younger people complain that they lose control with phone calls, have to immediately answer, and even that calls are by nature impolite compared to the blip of an incoming text.
