> Modern Communication
Experts have been studying the changes in how people in a society communicate with each other. Technology has played the biggest role in these changes as people are able to communicate with one another instantly in a variety of ways. Over the last 20 years, devices like email, cell phones and instant messaging have made it so we can get a hold of someone in an instant, no matter where they are. Before, people could call someone on a regular phone, write them a letter or talk to them in person. Now, there are many different ways to communicate with people, including complete strangers over the Internet. The way people communicate has also changed, not just the means to do it. Communication is becoming less personal and young people are not learning how to properly interact with society since they are always texting one another. This could end up leading to a sort of social ineptitude. It's not uncommon to see young people texting each other when they are sitting right next to one another. These communication tools have made it hard for people to carry a single conversation since they are always distracted by an incoming text or email. If this trend continues. We could really have a problem with the future of actual communication.
