Emily Post, beware. Thank you notes are going digital and even though it might test some of the rules in Ms. Post’s big blue etiquette book, we’re willing to embrace the changing tides. Look at it this way — getting your kids to send thank you notes after the holidays, their birthday party, or at the end of the school year can be torture for the both of you. But if those tidings of gratitude are personalized and from the heart, does it really matter if they go out via email or as a post on Facebook? Plus, it’s nice to know that you can get your thanks to their inbox quickly, and maybe even score some points with tech-savvy Grandma and Grandpa.
