This will help the vice president better understand the current state of your department. There are many events in the field of communication that have impacted current business practices. Some of these events include the Manuscript Era, the Print era, the Audiovisual Era, and the Internet Era. The “Manuscript Era” began around 3500 BCE. This was the beginning of the turn from oral to written culture. Hunter and gatherers were able to keep record of their transactions and this later served at the primary method of record keeping. The “Print Era” was another that was from 1450 to 1850 and was marked by the invention of the printing press. This invention had the ability to mass-produce written text. The “Print Era” gave way to the “Audiovisual Era” which lasted from 1850 to 1990. During this period, the radio, telephone, and television were invented, leading us to our current era, the “Internet Era.” These events have influenced business practices by allowing them to market and sell products or services through the internet, print media, social media, and other mediums. The internet allows for online networking, marketing, and consumers to buy directly from businesses and have the products shipped to their houses.
