This can extend from adopting a method of  family planning, changing one's food habits, to working for a social or political cause. Providing education and culture; from a class-room situation where knowledge and skills may be imparted, to dissemination of cultural heritage and values as well as cultivation of artistic interests. Entertaining, whether for personal or collective enjoyment  through public music, drama or sports. Influencing opinion to serve certain economic or political interests. These are some broad functions of communication.
