You Will Not Fully Understand The History Of Communication Unless You Check This

The history of communication goes back to the earliest signs of life. It can range from indirect forms of exchange to complete conversations and in broad spectrum types of communication. Then came the communication revolution which happened around 200 years ago with the introduction of speech. After that, almost naturally, came symbols. They were developed around 30,000 years ago.

Then advances in the form of writing came about in the past 2000 years. Futhermore, a few centuries ago, although in a much smaller scale, there have been major advances in telecommunications.

Transmitting signals as another form of expressing thoughts or ideas started thousands of years ago with the use of smoke signals or drums. This development began in the Americas, Africa, and some parts of Asia. In Europe during the 1790s, the first semaphore systems materialized. Moreover, further developments in electrical telecommunication systems began to appear in the 1830s.

The first sign of modern communication emerged with the invention of the telephone. It was the first time man has experienced an instant mode of communication with someone who is not physically present in ones vicinity. As more and more advances in telecommunication came after the telephone, man has created faster modes of communication as you will see in the video produced by VOKLE INC.
