Communication Technology


The aim of this report is show the advantages and disadvantages of different technology on communication. The information comes from a survey conducted by the director of Galway Culture Institute to some students.

Influences of Internet, Email and Mobile Phone on communication

Some students think that Email and Internet has a good impact on the communication for the following reasons:

* With the invent of internet, the world has effectively become an interconnected global village. People from all corners of the world are able to easily converse with each other quickly and easily through cyberspace.

* In the business world, deals can be made through emails and video conferencing, and mobile phone technology has made it possible for people to check and send messages on the go, allowing us to be connected 24-7.

* Couples are now commonly paired through dating websites using computer match ups. Chat rooms have become a common form of interaction between people as well, replacing a face-to-face meet up.

* The email is a faster way of communication in which you can include different type of information such as graph, image, text, and video.

* Email covers exactly what was said along with a time reference.

* Mobile phone is a long-range, portable electronic device used for communication. Mobile phones are now inexpensive, easy to use, comfortable and equipped with almost every latest feature we desire.

However a few students think that many businessmen today will still want to view their business partners face-to-face in order to size their potential partners up before accept any deals. This technology has reduced the communication between parents and their children due to the lack of time spend together.


We are now more connected in the globalized world, but are ironically more isolated from our friends and family as a result of the new technologies from the information age.
