Is Email the new Snail Mail?

'Don't send it to my email, I only check that once a week.'  This type of statement is more and more common lately and some are predicting that Email, as we know it, may be a relic of the past in not the too distant future.  There are so many other ways to communicate in the growing Social Media world.  Just a few of the methods now available are Twitter, IM, Texting, and all the other instant communications wrapped into Social Media platforms like Facebook and Yammer.  So going to your email inbox is now like having to stop what you are doing and go check your mailbox at home. 


And it is not just with individuals. Large companies are starting to notice this trend. For example, in early 2011, the CEO of a French IT company issued an unusual memorandum. He banned email. Employees were discouraged from sending or receiving internal messages, with the goal of eradicating email within 18 months.  Read about that and this topic in general in Fast Company's article titled 'Email Is the New Pony Express--And It's Time To Put It Down.'

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Snail Mail is the thing that we consider now normal old mail sent by the mail station. Like when you call an organization and they won't let you send information by means of email they say to send it snail mail.

    In the past one year I have not received a single email from a friend, all of them communicate with me directly or a in a group either on IM or Social Platforms. The simple reason, even they find email too slow. They simply send the message and they assume I would read it and if required respond to it. <a href="">assignment writing services</a>
