CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION1.2    Background to the studySocial media gained rapid prominence within few year of its existence it is generally the medium to socialize and many are aided by the transformation of communication processes especially among generation midwife by the media has now crept into the boardrooms of business organization and just like the internet, it has transformed the selling and buying processes. Though social and media is a recent phenomenon, it has proven to be just as effective as then traditional, news gathering, organization are formed to achieved certain goals and objectives which are set out for it Goals to be achieved are further subdivided and reflected in subdivision of the organization. All organization has a management structure that determines relationships between the different activities and the members, and subdivides and assigns roles, responsibilities and authority to carry out different tasks. Central to the smooth running of organization is communication. Communication plays a major role in human relationships, and organizations, run as a result of the relationship which exist between the individuals who operate within the structureCommunication is considered critical and pivotal for organizations to function. Barnard (1938)cited in Soola (2004) observes that the chief function of the  executive is to communicate .more than 75% of a business executive time is spent communicating .the critical nature of communication has led to investment in it, and has given rise to the growth and development of communication technologies.The rise and growth of new communication technologies have changed the ways organization operates. It is no longer surprising that most organizations which have keyed into the use of these new forms of technologies have found that the processing, transmitting and uses of information in this organization have become dynamic, simultaneous, quick and all embracing. it is little wonder that through these new technologies, virtual meetings are held between individuals, who physically live in far-flung part s of  different parts of the world and yet, they are able to,, meet decisions are reached, policies are formed and directives passed across to workers on these. As a result of these new forms of technologies, peoples interact regularly and seamlessly within and outside of their physical environment of their organizational setting without having to move from where they are except when such is deemed necessary and to carry out an instruction, or to interact to achieve a goal or carryout one action or the other.This has brought about improvement in communication in organizations. As noted by Soola (2004) communication improvement means the investment in communication technology and other communication related facilities .All these are done to ensure that workers and management staff communicate effectively.These communication technologies are varied and with the passage of time have become more sophisticated and portable. Some of these include computers (laptops inclusive) internet facilities, GSM handsets, and fax machines among other. It is necessary to note that most organizations strive on communication and with the availability of this information is passed easily and work is done fasted and in a much improved manner. This work will as such examine various new communication technologies and their impact on corporate entities.

This brings us to the examination of these new communication technologies and the impact they have on organizations. Are there used effectively in workplaces? Is information transferred as at when due through these facilities? It is also pertinent to ask if these new technologies are not abused s a result of the easy access to them. Issues of security also arise as unscrupulous individual have the capacity to reach and retrieve files virtually either of fellow workers or even corporate secrets. That is achieved by hacking into files stored away in their system. This constitutes the problem of this study.
