Marina Eggen: Group Communication
There are many ways groups can communicate when the people are all together in one place. Now with the use of technology groups can also communicate when they are not even in the same city. This is a picture of my mom, dad, two brothers, and myself just after we had a conversation on Skype. Even though my parents live in Hortonville, my brothers live in Madison, and I live here we were all able to talk to each other at one time. We could all see each other faces and hear each other voices. Verbally my siblings and I told college stories and my mom and dad smiled and laughed at them. Nonverbally, we all shook our head at my oldest brother, and laughed at my brother Alex. For some stories the nonverbal communication was different between my brothers and my parents. I could tell from my parents’ face that they are so proud of all three of us for getting this far. We did this all online too. It is so easy to stay in touch with a group of people who you don’t see everyday through technology.
