If you just want to send a text message (or the contents of a text file) to the console of all logged in users, you can use the wall command. Have a look at man wall for some (not a lot ) more info.

Hi gilead

With wall command, we can just broadcast a message to all the login users in only system. I am asking, how to broadcast a message to all the systems which all are in same network (similar to netsend command in MicroSoft Windows)?

That's correct - and unfortunately, googling didn't turn up a lot more for me. The smbclient command can send a message to a PC, but it doesn't seem to support broadcasts, somebody else here may have a different experience with it.
