Meaning – The term one-way conversation, refers to a conversation in which datais sent from one transaction program (the source) to another (the target) with no response requested and that is released after the data is sent. If the source TP terminates as soon as it releases the conversation, the data may still be in transit; thus, the source and target TPs are not necessarily active at the same time.
Some forms of communication can begin as one-way communication and eventually become two-way communication. Arguably, In the instance of advertisements, the advertisement which begins as a form of one-way communication becomes two-way communication as soon as a listener or reader responds by buying the item advertised.
Example of usage – “A call-in radio program begins as one-way communication, then becomes two-way communication when a listener calls in to share information and/or ideas on the air.”
