5 Social Media Sites That Change The Tradition of Sending Cards
Posted: November 25, 2013 by Emily Brown
If you decided to replace the good old Christmas cards with greeting messages sent via social media sites this year, you're not the only one. The new trend seems to be reaching its peak and replacing the traditional way of sending cards at large as there are numerous sites at hand to create your own unique electronic version of a greeting card.
Here, we'll mention only the social media networking sites that are most popular and trendy:
The first site that comes to one's mind when we mention social media is Facebook. Once you create a family photo collage on the likes of www.fotor.com you can upload it on Facebook along with a carefully written greeting in which you have the possibility to tag each person. Another sure way to be both unique and likes-prone is to send Christmas cards by using third party services like TouchNote, either via Facebook or email.
For those family members or friends who prefer to use Twitter over Facebook, you can exploit the 140 character limit on the micro-blogging messaging service to say "Merry Christmas". Since Twitter supports photos as well, you might consider as an option attaching a fun pic to the greeting too.
Not so leading as the two above, Pinterest is a perfect way to wish your fans and followers happy holidays along with your special recipe for Christmas cookies. Also, you can use it to post a short video of your family members with a greeting message, everyone would like that.
Instagram is another popular social network that supports both photos and videos. Whether your greeting is accompanied by an image or a video it doesn't really matter. Either way, it will win the hearts of your family or friends.
Even though YouTube is primarily a video sharing website not a social network, you can upload your video on YouTube and then you can share it on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or maybe send via email. However, we advise you to avoid sending holiday wishes to your family or friends through email because it somehow turns your greeting into a job.
Whereas these are the biggest threat to traditional greeting cards, there is a plethora of other social media services to let you share the Christmas spirit and wish happy holidays online.
