Who Is Actually Using The Phone Book These Days?
I'll be honest. Mine was at the bottom of my driveway the other day, next to my mailbox. It never made it into the house. I opened the garage and dropped it straight into the recycling container.
Why is there still a phone book?
Verizon has just released its 2018 version of the Yellow Pages: "The Real Yellow Pages."
I'm not certain, but I don't think there is a White Pages anymore....
Anyway, who still uses the phone book? I asked that question on Facebook, and the overwhelming response was that most of us don't use it. (Over 90% said they don't use it.)
This is 2018 and all of us pretty much have a Yellow Pages in our hand or pocket, as part of our smart phone.
Yellow Pages use to be good for looking up type of businesses in our area - but, we have Google! Who needs a big bulky (well, now, little tiny) book?
Here are some responses of people on Facebook who were asked if they used the phone book in the last year:
What's even more weird than having a Yellow Pages? The fact that so many local businesses are STILL paying money to advertise in the book!
Come on, wake up business owners! You're throwing money away! It's 2018!
