Today, communication has exponentially changed from just 20 years ago.

1985, telephone, face-to-face, letter-writing, e-mail, and smoke signals were the most advanced methods to reach someone.

2012, talking, video chat, phone (home/cell), text, e-mail,letter, IM, facebook message, facebook status, and twitter have made communication much less of an intimate part of life and more of a convenient, constant piece.

I like this! I feel like it’s a great way to get fast communication and there’s always the assurance that you can reach almost anyone at any time. Each portal of communication corresponds to a different type of message that is trying to be conveyed. For example, an e-mail is great for work or school-related communication. An e-mail reminding me about tomorrow’s newspaper meeting is a great way to keep track of my events I have to attend. A video chat, phone call, text, letter, facebook message, facebook status, and twitter are all mainly dedicated to social life. So, work and professional communication really haven’t grown. Social communication has.

About lilhanlin

I like to think of this blog as a beautiful connection between my life, personal convictions, and daily whims to whoever takes a moment to pause and read- even if it's only to myself re-reading it a few months later. Too many things keep expression trapped inside of us, and it's such a necessary element of life - to self-express and to see emotion released in its rawest, most authentic form. Writing allows us to do that - to take the time to articulate exactly what we feel or what we don't quite understand but must speak out.
