E-cards have always fascinated me. In this day and age, communication has changed dramatically even in the last 15 years. I never had a cell phone with me at all tines when I was in school. Now everyone has a cell phone addiction. Last week I lost my phone and had to go three days without it. It was amazing how much I depended on it. My calender, my contact lists (I quickly realized I do not know anyone’s phone number), and of course social media and games. What would I do while standing in line at the grocery store if I can’t play Bejeweled? Texting and email has become the main form of communication for this generation. Even when people are in the next room, or better yet sitting next to you. Even in the workplace, emails are much more common than a phone call. But with all of this non-verbal communication, you lose so much in the message. Being able to express our feelings has become very difficult. This is where e-cards have become so popular. The passive-aggressive way to tell someone how you really feel without actually having to talk to them. Better yet, you can just post it on your Facebook page and let all of your friends wonder if it was meant for them. I learned lot the week my ohone was missing, and think maybe I should ‘lose it’ more often.
