New Tech Tuesday — Can You Read Me Now

22 07 2008

Okay, so this edition of New Tech Tuesday isn’t about one technology, or a particular device.  No, it’s about a platform that is completely embedded in our lives….Text Messaging!

I heard this morning that China has 600 million cell phone users, which is 3 times the amount of internet users in the country.  Of course, you know Asia is way beyond the U.S. when it comes to Mobile technologies and usage…with the exception of the little company in Cupertino, with the partially eaten apple.  They are a bit in front of the technology curve.

So, already in China we are seeing all classes of society embracing the texting technology.  Companies are emerging with canned poems and love messages.  How soon will it be before Hallmark cashes in on this new platform…and we start sending birthday wishes, breaking-up with you messages?  With companies like Twitter and Mozes the revolution has begun.

What are you saying in 140 characters (70 in China) or less?  How is your business communicating to your community on this platform?
