New communication methods have brought a change to how
people are working, this includes the ways in which they work in and how they
work together, for instance, the facilities used by the employees and the
technology being used by them. It is almost impossible to be in a work-place
that does not incorporate technology and its advancements in their
communication techniques. Overall ICT has affected the standards of the workplaces

Email Description:

 

Electronic mail, which today is referred to as E-mail, which
most people use. It is used in the essence of communication as either for
work-related purpose or socializing, however, the email system not only has the
ability to send written messages across instantly it is also used for record
keeping and tracking important information as a contact alternative.

The email is a system sending information electronically via
computer in order to get a message or important information across to another
person by using telecommunications (links between computers).

 

Non-internet alternatives 

 

A non-internet alternative way of emailing is through the
post, land-lines, and cell phones or face to face. Some of
these alternatives are time-consuming and take a long time to do and could
cost you money if they’re far away. Before the emailing system existed, many
people used these alternatives methods just to get their message through to
other people. Soon systems were developed to link compatible mail programs
between different organizations over dial-up modems or leased lines,
creating local and global networks.

 

Target audience

 

An Email can be used by anybody and doesn’t have a narrow
target, although saying this it is obvious you would not want very young
children getting into the habit, so children are unlikely to be emailing. But
emailing is clearly applicable to anyone who uses a computer. I would prefer
people over the age of 10+, people who work or have jobs. I personally believe
most teenagers don’t use email but instant messaging services instead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Advantages:

 

–    Emails are
delivered extremely fast when compared to traditional post.

 

–    Emails can be
sent 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

 

–   
Web-mail means emails can be sent and received from any computer,
anywhere in the world, that has an Internet connection.

 

–    Cheap – when using
broadband, each email sent is effectively free. 

 

–    Emails can be
sent to one person or several people.

 

–    Emails are fast.
They are delivered at once around the world. No other form of written
communication is as fast as an email.

 

–    Emails do not use
paper. They are environment-friendly and save a lot of trees from being cut
down.

 

Disadvantages:

 

–    The recipient
needs access to the Internet to receive email.

 

–    No guarantee the
mail will be read until the user logs on and checks their email.

 

–    Emails may carry
viruses. These are small programs that harm your computer system. They can read
out your email address book and send themselves to a number of people around
the world.

 

–    Your mailbox may
get flooded with emails after a certain time so you have to empty it from time
to time.

 

–    Many people send
unwanted emails to others. These are called spam mails. It takes a lot of time
to filter out the unwanted emails from those that are important. 

 

–    Your files could
get hacked by people on the internet which means they could gain access to your
personal information.

 

 Possible enhancements

 

–    You should
install anti-virus software that defends against viruses/errors from occurring
on your computer.

 

–    To stop any
pop-ups from happening, you should add an extension called “ad block” on your
Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

 

–    Make a back-up
either by using drop-box or Google drive along with putting a password to
protect your files from hackers.

 

Fitness for purpose

 

Email is fit for purpose because it does what it says. Most
people use email because it sends messages instantly. You can send almost
anything and receive anything at any time.
