According to a new survey teenagers prefers to text rather than talk face-to-face.
The survey, done by Common Sense Media, found 35% of teens prefere to communicate via text.
This is compared to 32% who would rather talk in person with someone.
You can see a significant jump when you compare the results from 2012, when 49 percent of those surveyed said they would rather talk than text.
The increase could be due to the fact that more teens have access to Social Media. 89% say they have a smartphone.
