Re: It's the 21st Century: Outside of Work, Email is dead

While FB etc is good for palsy chatter, and Wattsapp makes a better texting system than using contract limited, pay to add a picture SMS messaging it's email that serves the purpose best for proper, and particularly business-like communication. I don't just mean for the work/job/office. I mean communicating with the retailers, services and organisations or family members (especially overseas) that we would once have sent a letter to. It's email all the way if you have to explain something properly, or add a few pictures or a quick sketch. It's like sending a letter except that there's no stamp, no walk to the red box and usually no delay or "lost in the post". (And from that point of view, even better than FAX).
