SOCIAL media and smartphones are being blamed for the decline in the number of postcards sent by holidaymakers.

Just one in six Britons send a postcard while on their travels, according to online market research company One Poll.

The research, based on a poll of 2,000 adults, found 46 per cent of people still use text, Facebook and email abroad.
