Does the paper diary have a future?
This is probably the question that we at Brepols hear most often. And the answer is a resounding 'yes'. No less than 76% of people who are 18 years and older use a paper diary. And 20% of this group even have more than one. Mostly to separate their private lives and work, but also as a general diary within the household. That was revealed in a poll conducted by GfK for Brepols with 3.417 people in Belgium and the Netherlands. Even people who use an additional electronic solution cannot imagine themselves working without paper diaries.
Why stay faithful to the diary?
- a diary is very personal
- paper is safe, it doesn't 'crash'
- a diary is always available at hand
- a diary works quickly and easily
