Today, it is common to ask people for their email address, rather than their phone number. Ray Tomlinson invented this revolution in communication in 1971.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, various individuals and groups continued to expand upon the capabilities of email—adding, for example, the ability to send the same message to multiple addressees, the ability to sort email headers by subject or date, and the ability to forward messages. The year 1988 saw the first sanctioned commercial email use of the Internet with the introduction of the CompuServe email system.
