Storytelling is 30,000 years old!

It is in our human nature to tell stories and inform others about the events of our lives. Storytelling, whether factual or fictional, is an intrinsic human characteristic. However, the way we communicate with others has changed drastically over time. Storytelling originated from visual stories, such as cave paintings, and then transitioned to oral traditions in which stories were passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth. They then moved on to words formed into narratives, including written, printed, and typed stories. The way we tell others and inform ourselves about current issues has become a more comprehensive experience due to the use of developing technologies such as the printing press, the camera and the Internet, as well as its social media platforms. Technology has allowed people to use all forms of storytelling over the years: visual stories in photographs, spoken stories in videos and recordings.
