Majority of Teens Use Texting to Ask Out Their Prom Date

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Today’s teens send an average of 60 text messages a day, according to a recent Pew Research study, and that preferred method of communication is evident in the results of a new survey on proms.

A survey of 1,243 teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 by the company TextPlus finds 58 percent of respondents would ask out their date via text message.

In addition, 67 percent of teens would accept a prom date request via text message.

Fifty percent of teens will use group texting, as opposed to speaking to a friend in person, to make prom plans.

Sixty-seven percent of respondents will text photos as part of a discussion on what outfit to wear.
