Faster more secure methods of communication
Back in the day, all we had were postal services. We relied on them for everything related to communication. They were however not as efficient or secure. It took a letter close to a week to get from the sender to the receiver and another week for the reply to get back.
This meant that in one month, the best you could hope for were three replies. This made communication ineffective. However, the internet, mobile phones, computers, and social media drastically changed this for the better. Sending messages and receiving replies has now become instantaneous. You can also make calls in real time and convey an urgent message in time to get back a timely response.
Communication has been revolutionized making the world a small village. Messages can go from one continent to the next in only a matter of seconds. You can even transfer money with just a few keystrokes at some very affordable rates. This has affected how we conduct business and help each other in a very positive way
