Remember when you made your first email address, and it was something like [email protected] or [email protected]? Are you STILL CHECKING that email? Or even using it?
A recent poll asked people how many email addresses they’ve had in their lives . . . and the most common response was TWO, with 19% of the vote. 18% of people have had three.
71% have had between one and five, and 7% have had more than 10. The age group that had the FEWEST email addresses was people 55 and older.
Another poll asked people how many unread emails they have in their PERSONAL email inbox, and it sounds like most people keep on top of that. 23% of people only have between one and 10 unread emails.
14% have ZERO . . . and 8% have “more than 1,000.” (Tip: Don’t use your “personal” email address to sign up for marketing lists. Use [email protected] for that.)
