Communication is the process of conveying messages, information, and ideas between humans and animals.
We can communicate by speaking, writing, or even showing physical actions.
Humans communicate verbally through the use of different languages that they know.
Animals communicate with one another through their noise.
There are four types of communication: nonverbal communication, verbal communication, written communication, and visual communication.
A communication consists of seven elements: sender, receiver, message, channel, noise, and feedback context.
Sender is the source of the information or the person trying to communicate the information; receiver is the one who receives the information; message is the content of the information; channel is the medium through which the message travels; noise is the interference that takes place in the communication process; feedback determines whether the receiver receives the information properly; and context is all entities involved in the communication process.
Communication is important as it allows us to express our thoughts.
Mass communication is the process of exchanging information through mass media with a large audience.
Newspapers, radio, television, and the internet are examples of mass media communication.
