Why has stamp collecting faded as a popular hobby?


When I was a child in the seventies, stamp collecting was a big hobby. You could find stamp albums and stamp collecting materials in most department stores. Not just a few items either, stamp collecting used to take up a good portion of an aisle. Today, you don't see much about stamp collecting in stores. Even hobby stores have a poor selection of supplies. Why is this?

    Oh, I forgot one that does't affect me, kids these days prefer to sit on their backsides staring at the telly or games consul whilst twiddling their joysticks, much easier than learning something about the world.
