Communication, II


We also receive much information through mass communication. By this means, people share information with a large audience.

Written texts are perhaps the oldest media of communication. The internet is one of the newest. Television, newspapers, magazines, and radio are other major media.

In addition, artists often communicate to the public through their works.
