Communication methods have been developing in many areas of day to day to life. Social networks have brought people from face-to-face communication to virtual communication. Our group will tackle the pros and cons of how communication helps and hinders culture and society. As a group we will showcase communication in multiple environment setting such as business, education and workplace. By examining the various way people communicate in each situation, we should be able to state the problem with our solution and how it will effect communication in the future. Adding on, our group will create a PowToon media presentation on the pros and cons of communication in culture and society. We will also show Youtube videos to illustrate to our audience, the severity of the problem. Furthermore, it will also enable people to see how it might impact them in day-to-day interactions with others and provide possible solutions they could make to overcome the stated problems.

As we tend to grow up we rely on multimedia communication that will give us access to others virtually rather physically. Thanks to social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. We have now access to each other through these updated technology features by these media networks.
