In today’s fast-paced world, communication has become simplified & complicated at the same time. Simplified because there are now 100s of ways one can communicate with another human being anywhere on earth – email, chat, Instant Messaging, video messaging – the works. Complicated because there’s just too many such tools out there, & choosing 1 to suit your needs can become quite a task.
