World discovery: Pen pals and the written rules.

New to letter-writing? One of these apps offers a unique, digital letter-writing experience if you have not had a penpal before.


If you’ve already participated in a closed group, you’ve met like-minded people who share a common interest with you. Penpal groups on Facebook are in abundance!

Rules: Prior to participation, you should give the general description and the ground rules of the group, a read. Weigh out the pros, cons and the risks. Does the group provide a safe platform or environment for you to participate or voice your concerns in, judging by how strict it adheres to the written rules, the contents and feedback on its page. The number of participating members may add to the credibility of a group, but like every other social media platforms, you should proceed with caution prior to giving away your personal details. Once this is established, you’ll enjoy meeting new people from all over the world.
