Communication is a very strong tool of interaction between individuals and it comprises of a wide arena of elements like words, commands, gestures, tone, emotions, feelings and more.

Communication can happen between any two nodes - this may be animals, humans or anything non-living like computers. As  far as communication between humans is concerned, it stands out because of its depth, variety and use of symbols.

More the communication between individuals happen, better their relationship becomes. Same is true of communication at other levels of society - between families, officially, culturally and internationally. If communication is made correctly,any individual can get the opportunity to know more and better about subjects not known to him or her.

Communication can change people in many different ways, depending on the type of communication and the message it conveys.

Communication may be oral, sent through the use of the human voice in spoken, yelled, sung, or whispered words. Such messages could result in the hearer becoming happy or sad; could make the hearer hurry up an activity or slow down; could cause the hearer to start doing something completely different from what s/he was involved with before the communication took place.

Communication may be visual, conveyed through print, picture symbols, body language, or in other ways. Motions may be used to convey a welcome or a warning to stay away; may provide encouragement or direction; may be directed at one particular individual or a whole crowd.

Communication changes people by educating them; allowing them to exchange feelings and ideas with others; making possible arguments and reconciliations; and in many other ways.
