    Communicate About

    I have a question about the usage of "communicate about":

    He communicated about history.
    I could find definitely similar sentences using the pattern "communicate about" on google:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/16/jo...hink.html?_r=0
    The intermingling of work and personal life adds to the onslaught, as people communicate about personal topics during the workday, and about work topics when they are at home.

    but not in dictionaries. Dictionaries show the pattern "communicate with" people, but not "communicate about" some subject. So, do native speakers think that the pattern "communicate about" is wrong?
