The first time this happened was in December of 1992.

We text each other every day. The first text message was sent from an engineer in England from his computer to his friend's cell phone. The message said "Merry Christmas". It was the first text message ever sent.

Two decades later we use text messages for everything. Work, Play, Our Family and much more.

Here are some other text message facts.

80% of adults and 91% of teenager send at least one message every day.

A lot of people say messaging has pretty much replaced ALL of their other forms of communication.

67% of people text more than they did two years ago.
