The objective of this paper is to present an overview of personal communications. This paper studies various projects that deal with the concept of personal communications. We are using those projects as examples of different approaches and create an overview. This big picture of the personal communications includes issues starting from near proximity of the person ending up to the large distance connections of some interest. We also present our own approach, PeerHood, and how it fits into the big picture.
