The forms of human communication, which can vary from intra person communication, with mass communication, and computer mediated communication).
Intra personal communication is communication with ourself. Through interpersonal communication we talk with, learn about, and judge ourself. We persuade our self of this or that, reason about possible decisions to make, and rehearse messages that We plan to send to others. In intra personal
communication we might, wonder how we will do our Visual communication studies and what we could have done differently. It is Increasing our self-awareness, our mindfulness,and our ability to think critically about all types of messages will aid us greatly in improving our own intra personal communication.
2. Interpersonal Communication
Interpersonal communication is communication between two persons or among a small group of persons. Most often, the communication emphasized in the study of interpersonal communication is communication of a continuing personal nature; it’s communication between or among intimates or those involved in close relationships—friends, family, and coworkers, for example. These relationships are interdependent, meaning that the actions of one person have some impact on the other person; whatever one person does influences the other person. Sometimes interpersonal communication is pleasant, but sometimes it erupts into conflict—making each person’s communication especially significant for the other.
Th is communication that proceeds by question and answer. Through interviewing we learn
about others and what they know; we counsel or get counseling from others. Many of the skills for interviewing are the same skills noted for interpersonal and small group communication.
Small Group Communication
Small group communication is communication among members of groups of about five to ten people. Small group communication serves both relationship needs such as those for companionship, affection, or support and electing a new chairperson, or designing a new ad campaign. Through small group communication we interact with others, solve problems, develop new ideas, and share knowledge and experiences. We also may live a good part of our life in online chat rooms, where us may interact with people from different cultures living thousands of miles away, and in social networks chat (for example, MySpace, Facebook,and LinkedIn) where us learn about and communicate with others.
5. Organizational Communication
Organizational communication is communication that takes place within an organization among members of the organization. Conferencing with colleagues, working in teams, talking with a supervisor, or giving employees directions are just a few examples of organizational communication. The study of organizational communication offers guidelines for improving our own formal and informal communication in an organizational setting.
Public speaking, also termed public communication is a communication between a speaker and an audience. Audiences range in size from several people to hundreds, thousands, and even millions. Through public communication, others inform and persuade us and we, in turn, inform and persuade others—to act, to buy, or to think in a particular way.Much as we can address large audiences face-to face.
Computer-mediated communication (CMC) is a general term that includes all forms of communication
between people that take place through some computer, electronic, or Internet connection, for example,
e-mail, texting, blogging, instant messaging, tweeting,or chatting on social network sites such as Facebook or MySpace or on our phone. All of these computer mediated forms, like their face-to-face counterparts,are used both socially and in the world of business.
Some CMC (such as e-mail or blogging) is asynchronous, meaning that it does not take place in
real time. We may send our message today, but the receiver may not read it for a week and may take another week to respond. Consequently, much of the spontaneity created by face-to-face real-time communication is lost in asynchronous communication. Other forms of CMC (such as tweeting, chatting on social network-sites, interactive websites, and instant messaging) are often synchronous—they occur at the same time and are similar to phone communication except that CMCis largely text-based rather than voice-based.
8. Mass Communication
Mass communication is communication from one source to many receivers, who may be scattered throughout the world. Mass communication takes place via media outlets: newspapers, magazines, television, radio, film, and video. Through newsgroups, blogs, or social networks, for example, We can post a “speech” for anyone to read and then read their reactions to our message. And with the help of
the more traditional mass media of radio and television, We can address audiences in the hundreds of
millions as they sit alone or in small groups scattered
throughout the world.
