Recently various types of new media have surfaced with surprising rapidily namely e-mails, blogs, and social networks such as Twitter and Face book. The dialogue on these media is critical yet insubstantial verging merely on negative and positive rather than an extensive study. However, few attempts have visualised the greater impact of the phenomena. In this paper, our effort is to investigate this recent communication trend by examining the history of human communication. Our empirical examination is accentuating the fact that this trend could be interpreted as a shift from logical communication to emotional communication. Simultaneously we would like to explain that this recent trend has its origin in the invention of movie and telephony in late 19th century.
