Ban the Book!
While we still have a ways to go before the white pages phone book can truly Rest in Peace, as you will see from the following infographic, 2011 helped to put a few more nails in the coffin. For example, 18 states across the US are now (in at least some parts) only delivering white pages phone books to those who ask for them. San Francisco has even enacted “opt-in” legislation for the delivery of the yellow pages. While this is still less than 30% of the country, it is surely a step in the right direction.
If the past year proved anything, it was that people don’t use or want the printed white pages, making the case for opt-in legislation even stronger. How’s this for a new year’s resolution: Show how your support in 2012 by joining our army of 100,000 people strong in the quest to Ban the Phonebook once and for all!
