Trend: The End of Handwriting

The decline of handwriting and the rise of e-mail and text messaging has been highlighted in a new BBC Daily Life survey of media consumption in the digital age.

It suggests that half of written communication is by e-mail, 29% by text message and just 13% by pen and paper.

Among the over-65s, pen and paper remained popular at 39%.

But among the 15-to-24s only 5% of their communications were by pen and paper.
