Facebook Is Killing Text Messaging, Report Says

By BRIAN X. CHEN MAY 11, 2012

Strand Consult, a telecommunications consulting firm, released a research note on Friday saying that based on measured minutes of use, smartphone users were spending more time on Facebook and thus probably sending more messages with its service than they are text messages.
