All you have to do if you want to communicate with someone in society today is to putt a call or send them a message through on social media.
Who has not heard of Skype, Facebook, or Twitter? They are all part of everyday life &are going nowhere. Irrespective of the location of the individual, the message gets delivered at the same rate &speed even if they are right beside you or on the other side of the globe.
