Has the word "Welcome" gone out of style?

I should ask has the phrase..."You are Welcome"  Gone out of style?

When was the last time you have heard 'you are welcome'?

It has changed as of late.

Now when I say Thank You I usually hear..."No Problem."  It is very seldom I hear, you are welcome.

I guess I am old fashion.  I still use the old word of 'Welcome' in my everyday vocabulary.

Just shows I don't like  lot of change.
