These days, if I meet a new friend we add each other to Facebook.  If the person is particularly fascinating, I try to get their Twitter.  If it’s a work colleague, I ask them to link me on LinkedIn.  Email is an afterthought.  But Visible Gains has done some work to really figure out the answer to the tough question — is email dead?

Visible Gains designed this infographic about effective ways to communicate over the Internet. From the looks of it, email is far from dead and here to stay.
