  1. Indeed, but one of the important component of SMS was the mobility, turning asynchronous communications into nearly synchronous ones

  2. I believe that the telegraph was the first way to connect and create the Short Messagins Service. Telephone networks have facilitated the creation of SMS. Smartphones have created applications like WhatsApp and success of social networks have created Twitter. People need to be constantly connected. We live very quickly and we need comuninicarnos quickly and short. The technology is at the service of men for us to cover our needs.
