In sociology, social interaction is the process by which a member/ members of society act and react to other members. It includes the action that is done and the reaction that is received. While interaction signifies a wider purview, communication is more specific that involves exchange of information. Prior to modern communication technologies, people used either broadcast media, such as television, radio and newspapers, or private communication tools like telephone. But these methods lack group-based interactions. With the advent of the internet, this polarisation between public and private media started to change.
