Will free messaging services cause the death of emails?
Death Of Email, IM VsEmail
Emails replaced postal mail. Writing letters have become a thing of the past with emails taking over as a quick form of communication. However, I wonder whether even emails will eventually go into oblivion. After all, today a majority of people who have smart phones find it more convenient to use WhatsApp and other free messaging services to get in touch with friends and colleagues. Sending a quick SMS with words compressed into alphabets has become so easy that why bother typing out an entire email is what most people probably think!
What are your views on this? Will emails die a slow death and become defunct?
