What is Social Communication?

We are looking to define social communication because this concept will help us gain a stronger understanding of what communication techniques are possible and what can be offered through the proposed Agricultural Communication Education Centre. With that said, what is social communications? Social Communications is a field of study that primarily explores the ways information can be perceived, transmitted and understood, and the impact those ways will have on society. Thus, the study of social communication is more politically and socially involved than the study of communication.

Taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_communication

Over time we have seen great leaps and bounds in social communication. With the immergence of technology, the forms of communication have grown and continue to grow. When looking at the big picture we can conclude that there are six major forms of communication with four being technology-based. These include face-to-face communication and written communication (letters) as the non-technology-based as well as telephone, radio, television and internet being the technology-based forms. These forms of communication provide a foundation for this discussion. As we have seen, technology is continually expanded and developing. As an example we have seen the transition from being able to simply communicate verbally on the phone to being able to text message, send emails and documents and even watch videos.

Another example of social communications would be our blog, which is used to keep readers up-to-date on the progress of our feasibility study. In turn, our readers are able to provide us with feedback, which makes this form of communication very beneficial to all parties.
