In the 1830’s, Samuel Morse and the telegraph changed the way people far and wide communicated. Since then, the way in which we communicate and interact with each other has changed drastically. The Telegraph paved the way towards the development in our communication technology today.
We no longer need to create a message through the tedious process of Morse Code. Messages are instantaneous and through the use of social media, we can engage with multiple individuals at once. Through the internet, we are also able to gather multiple sources of information and further our knowledge. Before technology, most people’s information on issues were gained from newspaper’s. With Social media, we gain our knowledge and perspectives on issues and events through various different sources, allowing us to take into considerations the multiple sides of a story and create our own opinion.
