Portugal Post Office issued the stamp series depicted how communication transformed. The set of stamps comprised of 4 pieces stamps are written communication on 0.30E , radio communication on 0.45E, television communication on 0.57E, and internet communication on 0.74 E


Social Communication represent the ways information can be perceived, transmitted and understood, and the impact those ways will have on a society. Communication requires that all parties have an area of communicative commonality.

There are auditory means, such as speech, song, and tone of voice, and there are nonverbal means, such as body language, sign language, para-language, touch, eye contact, through media, i.e., pictures, graphics and sound, and writing.
The technological advances revolutionized the processes of communication. Researchers have divided how communication was transformed into three revolutionary stages:
In the 1st stage, the first written communication began, with pictographs.
In the 2nd stage, writing began to appear on paper, papyrus, clay, wax, etc. 
In the 3rd stage, information can now be transferred via controlled waves and electronic signals.
