Videos better than Ecards

Ecards are digital version of greeting cards sent via email or any other messaging service. Ecards have been around almost since the dawn of Email service and back in the day they were of high importance. People usually send ecards to their lover, friends and family who live far away out of physical reach, on occasions like birthday, valentine’s day, Christmas and so on.

Ecards certainly helped people feel closer.

However, the trend is slowly dying these days because there is something better that allows people to feel closer over internet. And that’s videos. Videos, different to ecards, convey a stronger message and also requires bit of effort compared to ecards making them all the more special.

Why Videos are better than Ecards?

While ecards do generally allow people to add texts and even photos, they are still only able to convey so much. Video on the other hand opens a whole different portal to conveying the message you please.
