Snail Mail Versus Email

At this new era, we are living in a fast revolving society. Just recently we moved into cell phones from using phones. Now we move from snail mails to emails such as in mail.google.com. Internet is the main thing to communicate now, aside from cell phones. It makes people’s life become easier and the way we reach each other even miles away became more convenient. Internet delivers fast and inexpensive to use. There is a debate about which is better, snail mails or emails? They compare the old traditional way of sending information from the new one. So how they differ? And which is better? Here are some comparison and contrast. 

  1. You cannot deny that email is faster than snail mail. When it comes to communication, an email is faster. Once you have hit the send, the receiver can now see your email. Wherever you are and wherever the message will go it won’t be a problem. But mailing a document will cost you a lot. Then, the shipping will take longer than you expected. Email may be inexpensive or free. Depends on your provider.
  2. Hand written mails are still preferred by some group of society. There are events that prefer invitation given one by one at each homes. Handwritten cards are more valuable and treasured given on special occasions. Online invitation can be given with one click if you belong to the recipients you can receive immediately the invitation.
  3. When it comes to large companies, emails are more beneficial. You can send an email to the entire department when you want to say something important to them or announcement. Posting on bulletin boards sometimes is not effective.
