Effect of E- mail on Communication
With the technological advancement, the world has become a global village. You can have your message sent to a person thousands of kilometres away through communication on e-mail. Many business transactions are being carried out through e-mails. Casual conversations have also made their way on e-mails.

Christina Hamlett, 2010 argues that e-mail has worsened the destruction of the good society we had. She feels that individuals are getting their heads down on bad messages circulated in e-mails.   Languages are lucking their grammatical rules as people are communicating in 'destructed' languages with an excuse of it being just a mail. We are therefore supposed to learn that when e-mail is used wrongly, it destroys the society rather than building it.
