Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short, summarize this topic like I'm... Ten years old or a College student

[1]A message is a discrete unit of communication intended by the source for consumption by some recipient or group of recipients. A message may be delivered by various means, including courier, telegraphy, carrier pigeon and electronic bus. A message can be the content of a broadcast. An interactive exchange of messages forms a conversation.[1]

One example of a message is a press release, which may vary from a brief report or statement released by a public agency to commercial publicity material.
