This new study shows how many millennials use read receipts
Read receipts are an incredibly divisive topic. Some people think they’re an amazing way for people to know when you’ve read a text. Others wonder why you’d want anyone to know when you read their texts! Now because of a recent study on millennials and texting, we know exactly how millennials fall on the use of this controversial tool.
55% of millennials surveyed use read receipts.
However, using read receipts does not mean that people who favor read receipts respond right away. On average, all teens and millennials surveyed reported waiting ten minutes to return a text. So if you’re wondering why someone hasn’t responded to you yet, chances are they’re probably just waiting until they feel like it’s the “right” time to respond.
47.2% of people surveyed admitted to texting from someone else’s phone and pretending to be them.
While there’s no word on whether they were doing this to answer a simple question with someone’s permission, or to pull some Gossip Girl type stunt, this is still pretty freaky.
Lastly, 90% of people have sent a text to the wrong person. Which is honestly very comforting if it has ever happened to you.
