How has communication technology evolved and what would the future of communication be like in the next 20 years in all aspects of communication such as privacy for example? 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.
