90 years ago the silent move era ended but we still see its influences today
Ninety years ago the silent movie era came to an end, but silent communication lives on.
What once was old is now new again.
Nora Baldner, an Associate Professor of Communication at Quincy University, says it allows us to take something and compact it into short messages.
You see it daily on Facebook, through Snap Chat, even in your text conversations.
It's popular because it's quick, emotional, and effective.
According to Richard Rabbat, the CEO of gyfcat.com, our phones are usually on silent anyways.
Baldner says this form of communication allows us to communicate even when our devices have to be silent.
The future of silent communication won't just be for entertainment.
It's helping with more informative subjects like cooking and weather.
