      Can’t contact people in one platform if they’re not on it. Older family members are using messenger by default. Texting and calling outside Facebook is not an option if they are out of the country (costs). Who uses email outside of corporate communications?

      Besides messages and video calling is free on Facebook messenger, subsidized by the Telcos in my country.

      I use what the majority uses. There’s no reason to use something if no one’s there to talk to.

        Mail is also both slow and expensive for that kind of thing, most people no longer have fax machines, and you can hardly pop down to the local telegraph operator these days. They’ve rather gone to the wayside ever since telephony became the next big thing.

        And the reason they are there is… because they can contact you there and feel no need to change. If more of their relatives weren’t there…
