That is until the development of the Internet and mass production of personal computers.
Electronic mail has become the most popular form of communication in the twenty- first century.
With the ease of use in computers, and the communication power of the Internet, it only takes mere seconds to type up and send an email.
As the computer becomes a more popular appliance to have in your home, almost replacing the television, people have discovered the many advantages of electronic mail.
For that reason, traditional handwritten letters have been labeled ' Snail Mail'.
Another advantage of email is the text or content of the letter is very easy to format.
Enormous amounts of email circulate the Internet every day, there can be no doubt about that.
But how does the amount of email compare with that of traditional mail, also known as “snail mail”? We’ve done the research and done the math, so look no further than the small infographic we’ve put together here below, a comparison of email and snail mail volumes in the United States. The numbers are estimates for 2009, with the one exception being the share of junk snail mail (bulk mail), which is from 2005.
Another added bonus to receiving mail is when someone takes the time to use signature letterhead and personalized stamps.
Whether the mail is for business or personal use, the extra effort does not go unnoticed.
