How has communication technology evolved and what would the future of communication be like in the next 20 years in all aspects of communication? At one point in time, the telegraph was used to send messages along great distances. In the present time, we use cell phones to communicate along great distances. Now thinking about the future, technological advances such as holograms could be used to make face to face contact with any person and make it feel like the person is actually there in proximity to you. Certain advances in current day communication technology will set in stone the way we communicate in the future.
Suggestion: We would look at current communication technologies and assess what further improvements they could make.
Step: Research about current communication technologies such as cellphones, laptops, and social networking and research about what new technology can be incorporated into them to enhance the communication process.
Suggestion: We would look at current technological breakthroughs and incorporate them into current communication technologies.
Step: Look at new technological developments such as holograms and how they can be used to communicate with others.

"A business will use technology to speed up communication or information flow among these parties.

"The Internet will continue to play an increasing role in communication. Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) already plays a large role in several communication products and services. Sites like Facebook and Twitter allow users to communicate with networks of people. With the rise of the Web, people now have a platform from which they can address the world." (Strickland, 2010)
