Analyzing Messages Technology has advanced at such a rapid rate over the past two decades. Businesses and family’s can enjoy the benefits of this technology to stay in touch with friends and family as well as conduct e-commerce on the go. With a multitude of gadgets and constant down loading of information, it has become apparent that communication is challenging in not only how people communicate, but how we read and interpret communication from others. Non-verbal communication is slowly shifting into first place over face-to-face and voice communications in today’s society and business world. Message one reads, “Hi Melissa, Happy to hear from you. Hope everything is okay and you were just on vacation for five weeks! I would like to learn more about the Pennsylvania Partners in Arts and what it is they do. Hope you are well” (T. G. Seely, personal communication, August 6, 2009). Whereas the message is pleasant and polite in requesting more information upon the subject matter, the sender of the e-mail was short and to the point in the message while allowing some personal touch of welcoming the receiver of the message back to work. In my experience, people who write e-mails in this manner are normally like this in person and indeed act polite and welcoming of others. The environment of the message is very informal while opening up a dialogue for future discussions. The sender is being polite in hopes that the receiver will feel more compelled to respond in a timely manner rather than dismissing or ignoring it. Otherwise this message is coming from an owner of the company requesting further details; the message is very informal but appropriate. This level of communication is also appropriate because it is simply a fact finding for the sender of the message.
