Did you realize, or do you believe that of the 112 messages the average corporate e-mail user sends every day, nearly 15% are likely to be gossip. So finds Computer scientist Eric Gilbert at Georgia Tech examined hundreds of thousands of e-mails and found about 1 out of every 7 constituted "gossip." He defined them as messages containing information about a person or persons not among the recipients saying, "Gossip is generally how we know what we know about each other, and for this study we viewed it simply as a means to share social information.”
What about you and yours? Do you gossip or GET a lot of gossipy mail?
