For the sake of this lesson, we shall consider e-mails, social media postings, replies to
corporate website posts, and other forms of writing for online platforms as ecommunications.
Writing for an online platform typically has a very different style and
structure than communications such as memos, letters, reports, and other documents
that may have a wider distribution or more formal purpose. As more offices and entire
companies go paperless, it becomes all the more critical to develop writing skills for
electronic media.
