Most moms OK with a text this 'Mothers Day'

Most mothers find the use of mobile text messages and Facebook on Mother's Day acceptable, according to a phone retailer's survey.

Wirefly says its survey illustrates the growing acceptance of nontraditional -- and some may say less personal -- forms of communication on Mother's Day this Sunday.

Wirefly surveyed Americans, ages 18 and older, to ask them how they planned to contact the mothers in their lives to wish them a "Happy Mother's Day."

Aside from the moms surveyed, a majority of Americans think it is OK to send mom a text or Facebook message on Mother's Day, but sons are less accepting of the practice than daughters.
