So, in this post, [personal profile] theferrett wrote :
I talk to at least fifty people every day – texting with my sweeties, answering comments in my blog, solving tickets at work, social networking with editors and fellow writers.

... so I started adding up. Outside of work, I typically communicate with fewer than five people per day (on average). That includes in-person, e-mail, texting, etc (but discounting reTweets and FB Likes).
On work days, I talk to maybe 10-20 people more - and at the high end of that range, I come home feeling overdosed on people and retreat to my cave computer.
If I was regularly talking to 50 people in a day, I suspect I'd run away and hide in a cave by the end of the month.

So, the obvious question - how many people do you generally communicate with ? And do you feel that's too many or too few ? And where do you find the time for all that anyway ?

(and will I get more responses if I give in and make a poll ? :-) )
