Please Mr Postman!

A letter's nice, but social media is faster

For centuries man has put pen to paper to express thoughts and feelings, from “thank you” to “I love you”. I still enjoy sending and receiving letters and cards from friends and family and have a drawer full of those which were really special to me.

But the simple fact is, today there are quicker, more effective ways to get in touch with the people you care about. Social media allows you to make instant contact with people. It seems quite ironic that Royal Mail Stamps is using You Tube to encourage us to write (and therefore post) more letters and cards!

What would you rather receive? I don’t think anything will ever replace the feeling of receiving a hand-written message, but I could do without waiting for the postman!

    Am writing a thesis on Public Trust in WikiLeaks, the Media and the Government and need to know what your opinions are. The online survey is multiple choice and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please follow the link: http://www.kwiksurveys.com/?s=ILLLML_9669e09d. Would be great if you would encourage others to do the survey also.
