There is no use for either due to these 2 things below

1. texting

2. Facebook

What about people who don't own a computer and can't get access to one?
What about people who don't own a cell phone?

Not everyone can text. Some people don't have the type of phone that has texting capabilities. Also, there are those like me where texting doesn't work, because I can't see it. At least on the computer I can enlarge things.

I think e-mail is a better method of communicating then FB or texting. At least for some. I, personally. don't want my whole life on FB or any social media website, like Twitter, MySpace, My Journal, etc. I'd rather talk to a person on the phone, in person or through e-mail.

For those who feel e-mail is old, then I'm sure texting and/or FB is great for them. Everyone is different. What works great for one person may not work great for someone else.

Personally, I hate texting..I'm too slow at it, I'd rather talk to the person instead. Lately I have found that not a lot of people are facebooking as much anymore.

I think it's an age/generational thing. You won't find many of today's youth who are not texting or using some sort of social media.

For them, e-mail may be "outdated" since they communicate via Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Twitter... whatever the latest "hot" company is.

Older people, for the most part, don't have the interest or time for the current technology and are "sticking to the basics". They may be the ones w/ no computer, internet, or cell phone (if they have a cell phone it's one of those "for emergency use only" and not for their main communication).
