I. Introduction
”Humans communicate with each other in many different ways. The simplest forms of communication involve talking out loud, using hand signs and writing down messages. Technology is used to increase the number of ways people can communicate. People have invented devices and systems that allow individuals to talk to each other when they are not together. Communications technology is an important part of both today’s and tomorrow’s society.”

Telecommunication plays a vital role in keeping the balance of the renewed society since it has helped billions of people to keep in touch with each other although they are a million of miles away, even stresses out overseas. Although humanity has benefited from the resources and convenience provided by telecommunication, contradicting these are the disadvantages of telecommunication if misused, brutalized and abused.

”Communication ties together the parts of the society just as the nervous system ties together the parts of an individual. From earliest times, when the only form of communication was speech, to the present, when electronic signals carry information instantly to practically any point on Earth, communication has been the way people have organized their cooperative activities.”

A. Purpose of the Study

The researchers aim to edify about the different effects of using technology as a means of communication. They also aim to expand the awareness of the people of how they use telecommunication in their day to day living. The researchers main purpose is to expose the truth about telecommunication whether it is an advantage or a disadvantage in today’s generation.

B. Thesis Statement

Although telecommunication has been of great aid and is a huge advantage to the fast-growing societal modernization, its expansion has influenced the minds of the people and are somehow abusing it which leads to its own deprivation from the society.

The researchers aim to answer the following questions:
1. What are the different means of telecommunication?

2. Is telecommunication an effective means?

3. How is telecommunication an effective means of communicating?

4. What are the advantages of telecommunication?

5. What are the disadvantages of telecommunication?

6. Is telecommunication an advantage or disadvantage?

II. Methodology
Telecommunication has a big share in the development of our society but it has also its own disadvantages that is why the researchers conducted this research to further elaborate the effectiveness as well as the detriment of telecommunication. In order for them to achieve their purpose, they conferred information from books, encyclopedias and other reading materials from their school library. They also referred to educational sites found in the internet for additional supplementary informations. They also made use of their own observations as part of the society. These efficient techniques helped the researchers come up to their findings.

III. Research Findings
Different Means of Telecommunication
Using electricity- “People often need to communicate with each other over very long distances. One way to do this is to send electrical signals along a wire. The telegraph was one of the first devices that could do this. Telegraphs are relatively simple devices. Pushing down on a telegraph lever causes the devices to flow. This current travels very fast through a wire. At the other end of the wire is a telegraph receiver. There are also wireless telegraph systems. A wireless telegraph system allows people to pass signals through the air.”

“The telegraph, invented by Samuel Morse in 1837 was an early device that used the flow of electricity to transmit messages from sender to receiver. Operators tapped on keys to spell out messages in combinations of short and long electrical pulses called dots and dashes. They corresponded to letters and numbers in a system known...
