What is Communication?

Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another.

Although this is a simple definition, when we think about how we may communicate the subject becomes a lot more complex. There are various categories of communication and more than one may occur at any time.

The different categories of communication are:

    -Spoken or Verbal Communication: face-to-face, telephone, radio or television and other media.
    -Non-Verbal Communication: body language, gestures, how we dress or act – even our scent.
    -Written Communication: letters, e-mails, books, magazines, the Internet or via other media.
    -Visualizations: graphs, charts, maps, logos and other visualizations can communicate messages.
