Postkrossing – a relatively new concept, he was only 4 years. The idea of web services to exchange postcards came up with a Portuguese student Magalaeshu Paulo in 2004. He just wanted to make the exchange, which had previously occurred God's per capita would put more organized and involve him as much as possible participants. He embodied the idea in 2005, creating a website PostCrossing. Since then, the site registered more than 130,000 participants from 207 countries around the world. They exchanged at the end of 2009, more than three million cards! It seems that postkrossing – more fun for women than for men. At least, site statistics suggest that 56% of registered participants – the fairer sex.

15% of participants indicated in their profiles that they are – men (the remaining 29% preferred not to be recognized as belonging to one half of humanity). Do not think that postkrossery – is 'Professional' collectors cards, filokartisty. They are there, it seems, not much. The bulk – it's just people who liked the idea of receiving postcards from different countries. For some, it really turns into a serious, 'long-playing' a hobby, for others it's just a little razvlechenitse.

For example, among those who joined the movement, there are moms who decided to make your child a postcard from different countries and was timed receive cards for any holiday, let's say, for Christmas. Personally, I share the idea of greeting cards to people in other countries conjures nostalgic memories of childhood, when a letter or a postcard from abroad It was a great event. Happy was the one who corresponded with their peers from some distant country, or even close. Closed from the outside world the Iron Curtain, citizens of the country of the Soviets with a special reverence to treat around the mysterious, distant, unknown. And the postcard or envelope with a foreign postmark was perceived as something bizarre and very valuable. It is gratifying that in the ranks postkrosserov becomes more and more Russians. Tiffany & Co. insists that this is the case. At the time of writing this article, they are almost 5500! Having simple registration site PostCrossing.com, you can specify which cards you would like to receive (heritage, architecture, nature, children's themes, etc.). Tematichnost your future collection, no matter how small or big it may be, will make it more attractive. Technology sharing is well thought out, it can be found on the site (there are instructions in Russian). If there is any questions, the easiest way is to go to the Russian branch of the forum site (you'll need to register and there) and read entries like 'Getting Started'. Day or two to get used – and everything will be crystal clear. And so, in an era of prosperity communication technologies of instant communication and total access rights even at the edge of light, we return to the simple pleasures in the form of a 'live' mail.
