Comments: What Social Media is in My Pocket?

I borrowed an idea from Yuri... I use wikis for myself a lot now... to organize my thoughts in an easy-to-author and then easy-to-cut-and-paste into a report/application.

You're confusing SMS with two other technologies: MMS and mobile Email. SMS is just instant text messages which max out at 160 characters. This is what is being sent by billions of people all over the world. MMS is a newer multimedia messaging service meant to replace SMS, but isn't really. Sending photos from your phone via email is just that, you connect to the internet from your phone, use the incorporated email program to send a message using SMTP.

All three are very different. SMS is instant but limited. MMS is easy to use, but costly and slow. Email is the most universal but hard to set up and another phone normally isn't on the receiving end. It affects how people use the services.

Why can't we all just by friends, brothers and sisters? contributes to what separates us.
