Phone Books Are Hardly Used — Study Confirms
According to the USA Today, and a study conducted by Harris Interactive, nearly 70% of adults in the U.S. “rarely or never” use the phone book. Instead, most of them (60%) use the Internet to find contact information, a number that’s certain to continue to rise, especially as smart phone adoption and location-based services both grow. The study also indicates that only 22% recycle their phone books, and finds 87% support an opt-in where they would receive the phone book only if requested, up from 81% a year ago.
I guess with technology and the Internet, phone books are becoming useless specially as we move towards less paper. However, many states still require telephone companies to print and distribute phone books to landline customers.
Do you still use phone books??? I sure don’t!!!
