Today most of the people in the world use mobile phones and text messaging. Thus if you own a mobile phone, it is quite obvious that you must have used it to send and receive text messages. SMS is a popular mode of communication today and has been around for a long time now. Although SMS has been around for a while, not many people made use of it in its embryonic stages since it was not cost effective and needed a certain amount of hands on knowledge to do so.
Online SMS is a natural evolutionary step from mobile phone text messaging. Many people are switching to online SMS since it has many more advantages than mobile phone text messaging. One of the key factors of online SMS is the vast number of people you can text through online SMS. Mobile phone texting has a limited amount of recipients you can send the messages to. While this is the case with mobile phone messaging, online SMS gives you a vast number of recipient options which are perfect for business men and corporate individuals.
Another great advantage of online SMS is that most people are more comfortable on a keyboard than a keypad. Computer keyboards have been in existence for a long time and people are much more comfortable with typing up an SMS on a keyboard rather than a mobile phone keypad. Thus online SMS has many advantages over mobile phone messaging.
