"If I had one million yuan, I would buy you a palace! Do I have one million yuan? No, I don't! So I only can spend ten fen on this short message, sending you my best wishes.!"
Five years ago, the most popular electronic device was still a pager;
Three years ago, e-mail took its place; Today, SMS-Short Message Service is in fashion, and it is now considered as the 5th media ! China Mobile says that per second, there are 410 messages being sent.
Look around you! People are attentively watching their mobiles. Smiling or sighing, their facial expressions are worth observing. Thumbs are flashing over buttons, bringing happiness to recipients. The humor hidden within limited characters shows how charming language is! Through SMS, we make appointments, share jokes and latest news. We even reserve weather report and book tickets. Sweethearts express love in the form of text. This "Thumb Culture" is no longer only for delivering information. It becomes a communication tool, enriching our mental life and solidifying our relationship. When a phenomenon is modified by the word"culture", the tendency is for it to become fashionable. According to statistics, 67% of young people like to "Short" to greet each other. SMS is now linked to internet, to provide more convenience to people. I am grateful for the progress in telecom because SMS saves much money on my phone bill. Just on the tip of thumb, so much joy can be found!
