Abstract

This report investigates why there are so many forms of electronic communications despite their apparent similarities. Extensive background research is done to narrow the various platforms and aspects of electronic communication. A survey is then conducted on the general population in order to analyze trends to connect the reason for the many forms of electronic communication. The paper is concluded by assessing the perspectives of technological literacy, demographic, popularity, and situational scenarios on types of electronic communication being used.
