E-mail is one of the ways that the Internet is helping people connect. Now that people can send off a quick e-mail, there is little need for the so-called ‘snail mail’ that used to be the standard way for people who lived far apart to keep up with one another.
In addition to using e-mail for business, which allows instant communication in matters requiring a timely answer, e-mail is very popular among home Internet users as well. In fact, e-mail is making such an impact on the mail industry that the US Postal Service has actually started losing money.
Now there is something on the Internet that is even better than e-mail as a way to send messages your friends. Facebook allows you to chat in real time through Facebook chat or you can send messages similar to e-mail through the Facebook inbox. You can also post status updates to your wall that all of your friends can see.
