Communication in civilization
As we know, the human is an active creature who want always to move, to speak, to communicate or to do any action
Scientists said that the old human who lived B.C. and before some advancing was using signals to communicate with another human because he hadn’t found any language to talk with others. Even when we wanted to do some deals like selling and buying pieces of stuff, he was working with the principle of barter, which means, for example, if I want to sell a potato, I’ll take some eggs as a price from you.
Why was he working with the principle of barter?
Because he didn’t find any good language to deal with others with. Also, he can’t make any new currency due to the same reason.
This method is well known in old history and old humans found this as a perfect way to explain what he wants and what he feels.
This method is considered as the first language in the world, and it’s kind of pictures which have a meaning, so for example, if I draw a bird, that can be one of the letters. You can check the next picture to know what I meant.
As you see, they communicated like this with each other, it was a little hard for them, therefore, they tried to find another way to communicate.
Finding a language
I won’t say what is the first language, because scientists didn’t choose or say something about it. But I’ll give you the options of the first language such as Arabic which is the most recommended, English which is less recommended than Arabic, and the last one is Spanish which is least recommended.
What after finding a language?
After humans had found a language, they started to discover a new communication method, and now, we’ll tell you some :
Methods of communication
- Homing pigeon. People were used to using it a lot, they were writing their letter, and send it with that bird.
- Leather. By leather, they were communicating with each other before discovering and producing papers
- Rocks and kinds of tree leaves. That kind was for poor people who can’t buy leather, so, they were using that.
- Papers. After paper discovery, Rich people started using it, and poor ones started using leather.
- Sending messengers.
- Using a computer.
This period started after the human-created first mobile phone. In this period everything changed, and new methods appeared such as :
- SMS. This method appeared once humans created phones, and it was considered as the best way to communicate.
- Phone calls.
- Social media sites and applications.
What do you mean by social media sites and applications?
I meant modern sites and applications such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and more.
Do you think that technology changed our life?
Sure yes, but we can’t say that it changed it positively only, we can say that it has advantages and disadvantages too.
So, Do you see it more useful or not?
I see it more useful, now, we can talk with our friends, our family, our people without spending much time sending the message and waiting for its arrival. For real, I see that positives are more than negatives.
We can consider social media as anything in this world, it has its positives and negatives, the main idea is in the user of it. You can use it and make it useful, also, you can just waste your time for nothing.
We always have to remember that social media is created for us to increase our relationship depth, and to be more active in the community.
Everything in this world could be exceptional and useful if we used it wisely. Using anything wisely needs using your brain before doing anything. And I think that is easy.
All the best.
