Communication has changed at an impressively alarming rate over the past twenty years and will most likely continue to further change as years pass. Although twenty years doesn't seem like that long ago, technology begs to differ. Communication was around twenty years ago but the major change has been in the improvement of the technology used. Cell phones were available twenty years ago but they were big and clunky. Now a days they are slim. One of the major differences in cell phones back then to cellphones now is that we now have touch screens. We can actually work a phone and make a call without having to push big buttons. All we have to do is press the screen and everything works with the touch of your fingers. Another major revolutionary improvement in technology is text messaging. It has become very popular. Text messaging allows you to talk with another person in seconds without having to make a call. There are also bluetooths which allow you to talk on the phone without having to use your hands.
Computers have also drastically improved. They have become sleeker and smaller yet retain much more information and even work faster. Social networks have developed which allow you to chat with your friends and post up status' on what is going on in your life. It is another way of communicating without a phone. Communications continue to change even as we speak. Just recently a new camera has come out that allows the picture taker to take a picture and email it to someone on the spot. It is a way of communicating through picture. Communications will be around forever and will only improve more. I can only imagine what changes in communication will be like twenty years from today.
