Communication since the beginning of time has played a significant role in the evolution of human society. From “town criers” who vocally shouted out messages to a distance of up to 100 meters to modern communication channels where individuals across the globe have access to the same information in a span of a second, technology has evolved exponentially in a very short span of time.
