Proper Netiquette for ecards should be practiced and maintained with the same standards of vigilance and discipline to insure that the desired result of the communication is maximized. Whereby much direct contact, mail or letters can be replaced by email to some extent, there is a further diminishing value when ecards or their variants are used. Forms of ecards are available as readily as the display racks of stationary stores. These can, for the most part, be serious, humorous or witty as the following list shows:
Retirement by employer
St Patricks Day
Mothers /Fathers Day
One should note that many ecards are free but some of these point to advertisements. This may not be the image one would like to show. Lastly, the message or tone an email conveys should be chosen very carefully. If there is any doubt that an ecard will be well received, it should not be considered.
