One of the most trending media theories nowadays is the theory called participatory culture. A participatory culture is a culture where individuals act as contributors, creators, and producers of some type of published media content. It is a contrary concept to consumer culture where individuals act as consumers only. It is mainly associated with the recent technological developments and the internet era. This theory is increasingly spreading around the world because it allows people to act as prosumers and to create and publish their own content freely through the internet and other media platforms instead of consuming content only.

Modern culture in the 21st century is defined by mass media. Every aspect of our culture, from entertainment to news, is conveyed through a modern platform of mass media. While we, as a society, have expressed our ideas and thoughts through these mediums, we have also been the creators of them. At some points it is easy to think that because we have created the medium that we also control the message, but often times these two interact together without direct human intervention. It is from this almost sentient expression that negative impacts, either implicitly or explicitly, heavily impact our modern, technological culture.
Traditional media is known as broadcast where information from one to many is involved. In this aspect of media, broadcast such as television, radio, newspaper and also magazine is classified as the default source of news and/or other information which are unveiled to the world in a streamlined manner.

They also have to decide how much or how little information to provide, in what way, with what level of access, and how best to present it.

In the past 21th century, the characteristic of the internet became more and more obvious while is far-reaching impact on people's life. In 2010, "Note on Metamodernism" was published by Timotheus Vermrulen and Robin van den Akker pointed out that postmodernism has gradually receded for many reasons. At the meantime, the new structure of feelings and ideas is called Metamodernism.
The new media era we live in is an age of rapid technological advancements, where the internet is very powerful and social media is increasingly prevalent. With rising popularity, people are relying a lot on these tools for information, communication and entertainment because of their sheer convenience and accessibility, and have begun to neglect some of the more conventional forms of entertainment like reading. However, I believe reading as a pastime is still important as it relieves stress and has a high 1enjoyment value. Therefore, I firmly disagree with the statement. Firstly, reading as a pastime is still important in this new media era as it is a great way to relieve stress.
(Vazquez, J. I., & Lopez-De-Ipina, D. (2008)) Many observers allege that the Internet is changing society. Perhaps not surprisingly, given the novelty of the new digital media, there is little agreement about what those changes are. Our purpose here is to summarize research by social scientists about the Internet and to encourage more sociologists to contribute actively to such research. We believe that it is important for sociologists to address these issues for three reasons. First, the medium's rapid growth offers a once-in-a-lifetime oppor- tunity for scholars to
