In this context of study, Singapore's founding prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew (LKY), will be use as one of the “typical” Internet phenomena to investigate the impact for influencing the countries especially Singaporeans. In addition, review the implications and links between the international independent media organizations, journalists and web bloggers.

The core competencies that his theories explored are internet searching, hypertext navigation, knowledge assembly and content evaluation (Bawden, 2008). He changed the generic view of digital literacy which was merely perceived as the possession of technical skills and stated that the digital literacy is about mastering ideas rather than key strokes (Bawden, 2008). He suggested that the digital literacy is about having digital skills to imply it to everyday life (Gilster, 1997). One important contribution to the theory and concept of digital literacy was given in the research by Eshet- Alkalai and Amchai Hamburger(2004). They proposed a conceptual model of digital literacy that describes five major characteristics of digital literacy, which was not present in Paul Gilster’s theories.
To strengthen his argument, Jurgenson must further relate to other reader’s experiences. Rather than focusing on the critique of media use, he should expand on social media’s benefits in our lives. This way, the reader can clearly see how both the offline and online have shaped the real
Platform to Socialize and to Express As mentioned in number 2, digital media provides an online platform for discussions and conversation. A study showed that 1 in 4 people spend time socializing online rather than in person (Reeves, 2015). Digital media acts as an extra venue to allow people to socialize from communicating online to sharing funny pictures with friends. Moreover, digital media is an excellent medium for introverted people to interact. Digital media levels the field as everyone can be heard regardless if they are introverted or extroverted.

Business, social interactions, and communication are undergoing progressive changes resulting from the influence of technology. In fact, the projected influence of technology is that it will have a determinist role in virtually every aspect of the society in the closest future. Banking, immigration services, and several other processes involved in accessing essential services are slowly but consistently shifting towards technologically specific systems. The social media platforms such as Whatsapp, Skype, and Facebook continually transform conventional means of communication such as telephone calls and radio.
In his powerful 2016 essay, “ In the Depths of Digital Age," Edward Mendelsen persuades readers that humans are compelled to constantly change their perception of the world in both positive and negative ways as a direct result of the digital era. Changes caused by the digital revolution are abrupt and overpowering like an unpredictable storm. In consequence of this sudden transition and the development of the smartphone, people’s lives have become progressively public and accessible. The younger generation(s), especially, have a different understanding of privacy, and thus are prominently the ones to expose themselves on social media and the rest of the virtual world. Furthermore, not only are the physical aspects of people’s lives willingly being put on display, but also the emotional, making the society more vulnerable and permeable.
The aim of this essay is to explore to relevance the use of semiotics for contemporary design. Holt suggests that the semiotics theory is consequential in understanding design. Tracing back to the basic understanding of semiotics theory, it is defined to be a study of interpretations of meaning from artwork, signs, symbols and images.1 The development of semiotics theory will be discussed, in terms of how images can be translated into words through Roland Bathes’ concept. Focusing on the use of linguistic messages on a sign as mentioned in his book “Rhetoric of the Image”. Followed by how it reflects on the understanding of contemporary art on social media.
Each Instagram and Snapchat has its own features and benefits and both have a place in the market, any of these is better nor worse. It depends on the user what are they searching or their preferences.

What ever you send to someone is delete after they opened it , so that means that anyone can send a pic of themselves. They only way to keep it is to screenshot it.
The Internet provides adolescents with avenues to explore their identities and exchange intimate disclosures (Wolak, Mitchell and Finklehor, 2003). Adolescents engage in Social acuity, a perspective - taking ability to successfully create a desired impression. In recent years, the art of self-portraits has exploded into “the culture of selfies’. Selfie, a modern day tool for self-presentation, has turned into a global pop-culture phenomenon. According to his theory of the looking-glass, Cooley (1902) believes that individual’s self is created through the ideas and concepts that others have about them.
The introduction of the internet has changed the way individuals communicate and interact. It has led to new ways to create culture and community and has even brought about new forms of intimacy (Hillier & Harrison 2007, p. 83, Zhao 2006, p.459 & 472). Michael W. Ross goes a step further and suggests that the internet has helped to shape sexual culture ( 2005, p. 349), and argues that it has not necessarily transformed sexuality, but rather it has transfigured it. He said, “it has illuminated certain aspects of it so that they stand out from their equivalent social sexual interactions” (2005, p. 342). Often times individuals who are attracted to the same-sex may have negative experiences out in the world, but the internet can provide a place
