If you're into the more aesthetic side of the equation, you might take an interest in mail art, the practice of sending artful and/or whimsical objects through one or more postal systems. Postsecret (warning: some entries NSFW) might be thought of as an ongoing intersection between mail art and the share-too-much quality of social media. And if you've got a yen for the cheesy and campy, check out Bad Postcards.
