What is unfriendly about email?

I don't have any of the other communications channels you mention and I 
feel no burning desire to go and install any of them.

Email is the lowest common denominator on the internet.  It doesn't rely 
on walled gardens and "just works".  While many people subscribe to the 
new-fangled messaging platforms you list, not everyone does.  Everyone 
does have an email address.
