Technology enabled us to use email to send letters rather than writing on letters. Thus, as there is technology included, recipient's and sender's address and name as well asdate and time of when the letter was written is already computed and sent, so we need not put them in our letter.
Once technology advanced, most people found it cheaper and less troublesome to send emails and messages through social medias such as facebook and twitter. It also takes much less effort and it is much faster as it only takes a few seconds compared to written letters which takes a few days.
Technology has allowed us the freedom and ability to write an email which reaches the recipient faster than normal letter posting. Thus,more people opt to email people than to write a letter. It takes less effort too to write an email than to write a letter. Hence,as technology has developed over the years,written correspondence is not very common.
It is more convenient to email a person rather than writing to them. The recipient will receive an email faster than a letter. This is useful as some issues could be urgent, and need to be responded to quickly. The dates and address are also automatically written as well. Letters are also rarely received now, are mostly now bills.
Technology has enabled us to correspond with people even faster and better than before. The invention (or evolution) of the internet has allowed to communicate with peers at the rate not conceivable in the past decade. Bills, letters, messages, shopping can all be done at a push of a button. "Click!" and you are done. This is the beauty of technology and one can only imagine what will come next
Technology has enabled people to reach to their relations and friends quicker using social and mail platforms online like emails, Facebook. Through Facebook, you can type a quick and informal, casual note within seconds without any costs instead of making phone calls or text messages. Through email, you can send a letter without paying and email allows us to send a particular email copy to multiple recipients. In this way, we can see how has technology affected written correspondence.
Lesser letters are sent by the day as the Internet is a new and efficient way to do so. They do not require charges and fees too. However, due to the fast-paced world of the Internet, many would tend to use abbreviations, so as to deliver their messages faster, yet with the same purpose. Despite its convenience, letters (emails) are now losing their formality and are now becoming similar to text messages. Hence, writing letters via the Internet is a double-edged sword.
Technology enabled us to use online communication, we usually use short forms, slangs and usually use a informal register. Now we get used to it and usually write in a informal register, and slowly, the number of written mails decrease and the number or emails rapidly increase.
Contacting someone is a lot more faster and more convenient, but at the expense of written correspondence, in my opinion writing proper letters is a dying art.
There are less letters being sent as it takes more time and money to both write and send it to the receiving party. There are simpler ways of communicating with others, like Email, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, which has instant messaging, which is helpful when there is an urgent matter at hand.
