Presentation Transcript

It's been hailed for its succinctness and blamed for everything from sore thumbs to the decline of conversation. Love it or hate it, the text message is 20 years old (Happy Birthday!). The first-ever text message was sent December 3, 1992. It read simply, "Merry Christmas.” As of Monday, the text is no longer in its teens -- the age group it's probably most associated with. In fact, it's more of a senior citizen in technology years. Six billion SMS (short message service) messages are sent every day in the United States. After two decades of constant growth, text messaging is finally slowing down.

The year in pictures (2012):

After a long period of closed beta testing, Microsoftmade the beta version of its social network, Socl, available to everyone on Tuesday. Socl initially launched this May. It's a search-meets-social networking website that looks more like Pinterest than Facebook, and has until now been open only to invited Microsoft employees and college students. Now, everyone with a Microsoft or Facebook account can access it. The sign-up process is effortless -- users simply connect their account with Socl. They can then start sharing content (e.g. photos, videos, links), and comment on other members' posts.
