From smoke signals to smartphones: The evolution of communication
Running late to meet a friend and can't quite remember which alleyway the Urban-spoon-recommended café is on? No worries, your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone can map* out the route and facilitate your instantaneous "B there in 5, soz!" message. From smoke signals to carrier pigeons, newspapers etched in stone to the rise and fall of MySpace - the way we communicate with each other has changed significantly over time thanks to advancements in technology. Simplistic in design and execution, they were used first used in 200 BC to send messages along the Great Wall of China. Carrier Pigeon: In the 12th century AD Sultan Nur-ed-din built pigeon lofts and dovecotes in Cairo and Damascus, where pigeons were used to carry messages from Egypt to cities as far away as Baghdad in modern day Iraq. This extensive communication system, which used pigeons to link cities hundreds of kilometers apart, is recognised as the first organised pigeon messaging service of it's kind. The telegraph is a now outdated communication system that transmitted electric signals over wires from location to location that translated into a message. In 1844, Samuel Morse sent his first telegraph message, from Washington D.C. to Baltimore Maryland. Facebook is not just a way for us to stay socially connected either, it's also an extremely profitable marketing tool used by savvy businesses to connect with new and pre-existing customers.
