how are interpersonal,group and mass communication different? give examples of each.
Interpersonal communication occurs between two people or in a small group of people. Interpersonal communication takes place between romantic partners, family members, friends and coworkers. Although interpersonal communication can take place in a small group of people, this type of communication is generally between two people, and it takes place in an informal manner. Small group communication generally takes place among five to 10 people. These groups form because the members of the group are charged with performing a specific task or to meet relationship needs. Examples of small group communication can be found in families, workplaces, therapy groups and groups of friends. Mass communication occurs when one source sends messages to many receivers in different locations. Mass communication includes print media, such as newspapers and magazines, and film, video, television, radio and the Internet. Compared to other forms of communication, mass communication tends to be the most formal. The audiences of mass communication do not have a lot of opportunities to give feedback to a speaker.
