Is the Postcard Dead?
There is a story flying around the newswires today announcing the death of the postcard.
“The age of the postcard is well and truly over for 18-24 year olds, whose favourite form of keeping in touch with those at home is by texting and using Facebook. 35-54 year olds overwhelmingly keep in touch by texting and calling home, but a quarter of those over 55 years of age are still fans of the good old postcard.
Women are top of the texters, with 40% choosing to text and send photos of their holidays through their phones. Even though the majority of men also prefer texting over other forms of communicating, generally more men than women favour emailing and posting updates on Facebook to keep in touch.”
When I am traveling, I use Facebook to share with family and friends. I haven’t bought a postcard in years.
