Will posting letters become history?
With nearly everyone being able to access the internet these days do you think that with the popularity of internet communication like email and social networking people will stop sending letters to each other. This may lead to the complete halt in the mail industry in several years time. Do you think this could happen?

I never send letters. I pay bills online, and any renewal to a service is done through their website. My grandmother on the other hand, sends letters to her friends EVERYDAY! She mails out 3-4 letters every day of the week (Except Sunday of course).

The United States Postal Service may get shutdown, but I highly doubt replacing real hard copy letters could ever be replaced. You can't scrunch an email into a paper ball, and make a free throw into the trash. You can't use email to start a campfire. You can't use an email to process serve someone to appear in court. ... and the list goes on.
"... There are other private mail & delivery services that do a better job, and are making a profit. (ie. FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc.) The United States Postal Service (USPS) should've been shutdown many years ago.* ..."

All good things disappear at one point or another. However, handwriting will go away, but the physical sending of a letter won't go away for a while. I say this because businesses will type out a letter and send it via mail. Maybe they could send it both through the mail and e-mail? Who knows what the future brings

sending letters to people apart from business usage, will finish, and i don't think it's going to be down to emails or the Internet!
not everyone has a computer, especially in the developing world, but due to cheap mobile/cell phones, practically everyone has one, even in third world countries, if you want to communicate with someone, there not very far away, you can just take out your phone and call them.
