Really?? ONE?

My cousin Julie posted a link today on Facebook:

Regarding a common error in typing. 

Here is my question for you?

How many spaces do you use after a period?

Two? That’s what I was taught by Mrs. Allen back in 1991.

However I was informed today that that is wrong!


Yep, supposedly two spaces is an outdated 1950’s style of typing.

Well then when did we go down to one I’d like to know.  See I just did it, habit?  No, just what I was taught not that long ago!

The big question is, will I conform?  Will I follow the NEW standard.  I mean I don’t want to be incorrect, but I also know I’m not the only one. 

How about you?   Will you change? Or are you already a one-spacer?
