A Few E-mail Facts

Fast Company had an article the other day with some great stats on email:

  • There are 3B email accounts worldwide.
  • Email use by seniors increased by 28% from 2009-2010 while use by teens dropped 59% in. That same time.
  • The average business person sends 33 emails per day. [maybe on a day when I’m in meetings for 9 hours…that’s really low]
  • 89% of all emails sent are spam!
  • Only 8% of emails sent are business related.
  • In 2010, there were 107 trillion emails sent; 25 billion tweets; and 170 billion pieces of mail.
