The problem that Correos de México and the philatelists face, was not caused by social networks, but because in Mexico and in Latin America, in general, there is no habit of reading and writing, said Gustavo Adolfo Gordoa, representative of the Potosina Philatelic Society.
Social networks are not guilty of damaging the Postal Service
This Wednesday the first-day cancellation ceremony of the stamp "450 years of the translation of the Bible into Spanish" was carried out, so it is already on sale to the public; 200 thousand of these stamps will be issued.
During the event, Nelsa López Hernández, State Postal Manager, assured that "Correos de México is alive", and pointed out that the institution works because the sending of letters is part of the citizens' culture, as it stressed that this habit helps improve the calligraphy and the spelling of children, in whom problems have already been found such as the fact of writing "abbreviations" that they use in social networks.
In addition, Gustavo Adolfo Gordoa said that philately cannot exist without Correos de México since it is who provides them with the material, also mentioned that there are many issues with which you can make stamps, only during the last year there was some soccer with the Mexican Selection, flora, fauna and even Christmas.
He said that through the postage stamps you can get to know the country, since they show the flora and fauna of the country, as well as activities specific to each region and other issues, but indicated that there are about 400 countries that issue stamps and they address more diverse issues, for example in Spain have been issued stamps of the Star Wars and Harry Potter.
He pointed out that in other countries there are more philatelists because the postal service is still in use, because they have more ingrained the habit of reading, while "in Latin American countries the big problem we have is that we do not read, we do not write, it's not so much on social networks. "
For the time being, although the sending of letters, banking and telephony services has decreased, as well as the sending of packages, they have kept the Mexican postal service active.
