Infographic: Study Shows Email is Still Our Favorite (with poll!)

Good news, anyone!  If you’ve ever been worried about communication services like Twitter or Facebook eroding the usefulness of your beloved email, a recent study by ExactTarget shows that email is still the king of our digital lives.

The study they conducted asked users “What is the first place you go online in a typical day?”, with a solid 58% of users reporting that they used email first.  This was followed by 20% of users using search engines, 11% using Facebook, and 5% using online news sites.  For me, I usually open up my browser and TweetDeck simultaneously, but I definitely put a priority on checking my email before anything else.

So how about you?  Vote in our poll below to see how we compare to their study.
