And as the existential debate about email rages on, a rare clear voice emerged last fall at WebSummit 2016. Sean Ryan, VP of Workplace by Facebook strolled on past the debate by saying the argument is not that interesting. "Email is going to die anyway. Anyone with teenagers knows this. They don't use email."
