The message intended is not necessarily the message received.

Communication (from Latin communicare, meaning "to share") is the act of conveying intended meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs and semiotic rules.If you want to be an effective communicator, these three practices will separate you from the vast majority of less-than-effective communicators out there in the business world.

Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another.

Although this is a simple definition, when we think about how we may communicate the subject becomes a lot more complex. There are various categories of communication and more than one may occur at any time.
