In order for media to be produced, it must be financed. There are three primary ways in which media are financed. The first is through government sponsorship, examples include the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in the United States or the British Broadcasting Channel (BBC) in the United Kingdom. The second is through commercial advertisements, the majority of media in the United States are funded by this category. The third is through a pay per view method, some common examples of this would be Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fights or shows that are exclusively on Netflix produced by Netflix such as Stranger Things. Each of these methods has positives and negatives associated with them and in most countries, media is funded through a combination of all three. The proportions, however, vary greatly. This paper will discuss the pros and cons of each of these funding types, as well as, in what proportion I believe each should be in order to form a perfect media society.
I agree with Moises Naim’s observations on the “Youtube Effect” because his ideas and observations are still as accurate as his observations were about 12 years ago. As an avid youtube user myself, I can vouch for his observations because not only do I use youtube for entertainment purposes like most young adults my age, I also use youtube to find out about serious issues that are going on in the world. youtube allows millions of people to watch and post all sorts of videos and I feel as though there are a few pros and cons of the “Youtube effect”. The pros of the “Youtube effect” are the fact that the informative videos can educate you on things you had no previous knowledge of. More than half the time, you can acquire more information from an informative video than you could just by watching the news. I believe that one other pro of the “youtube effect” is that just like Moises Naim stated in his article, When a video is posted to platforms such as Youtube, it gains more of a permanent presence with the help of bloggers and youtube enthusiasts as apposed to seeing something in the news that most people would end up forgetting about in a few days, Which brings me to the cons of the “Youtube effect”. In Naim’s article he talks about a downside to youtube and how with manipulation, it is harder to know what is real and what is not. I agree with that point because today, there are so many people that know how to photoshop and manipulate videos and photos
With so many different options for virtual communication available, it becomes easy for one neglect YouTube as a main platform of social media. Since the site launched in 2005, it has become useful to the average person in any household. Typical mothers can use it to find a new recipe for dinner, fathers can use it to find out how to change the oil in a car, even children can use it to watch a video on how to calculate the mass of the sun for their projects. But YouTube has become much more interactive than simply watching a video, there is a whole community on the site dedicated to entertainment and forming relationships with people. When someone mentions the word “Youtuber”, people like Ryan Higa, Jenna Marbles, PewDiePie, and Zoella typically come to mind. “YouTubers” are people which host a channel, or account, on
Lisa Lubin, infamous writer and photographer, suggests, “video informs and entertains people and, good or bad, today most people prefer to watch a video rather than read a page of text”. Videos have positive and negative connotations. Family’s often use video’s positively to capture life’s greatest moments. Parent’s often film important events in their child’s lives, such as their first steps, their first Christmas, and their first goal in a sports event, just to name a few. On the contrary, other people often view video’s negatively. They often feel that video’s only capture negative events, such as rape or murder. Videotapes were first introduced between the 1980’s and the 1990’s. Don DeLillo’s short story “Videotape” was written

Printed materials are often taken for granted. Without the printing press, we would have no books, newspapers, and magazines. The printing press revolutionized the way that information is shared, recorded, and how quickly information can be shared. The printing press is one of the greatest inventions of all time; it changed how we have evolved over time and it has affected various cultures in many ways. Elizabeth Eisenstein said it best when she stated, “this sort of spectacular innovation, while deserving close study, should not divert attention from much less conspicuous, more ubiquitous changes.” Our grammar changed, our language changed, and our lives changed. We even possess a highly guarded liberty, the freedom of the press.
Education is an important necessity to have in life. However, education is not easily attainable or in the reach of everyone’s hands.

It helps students who are slow learners, all the way to adults who need to refresh themselves on certain subjects.

Focusing on the social forces that prevent people from seeing and understanding the forms of power and domination that exist in society and affect their lives. I feel like this theory reminds me of social networks and how we are connected to the people that we have as followers or
Believe it or not, religion, which is “the service and worship of God or the supernatural” (Webster) is far more common than the average Joe notices on the surface. A large amount of people wouldn’t see religious aspects in their everyday life except for those they practice and even then, most are limited to a single day if even that. With the proper lens it is possible to gaze deeper into everyday occurrences and see factors such as subliminal meanings and blatant themes that have religious values to accompanying them. This theme of religion in popular culture can be seen popular aspects of everyday life. Many religious institutions see media within popular culture as an avenue to communicate to the mass their message and/or vision. This media covers movies, tv shows, popular music, and many more common media content that people like to use on a frequent basis. Movies such as The Golden Compass, games such as Far Cry 4, and
Technology has an impact on many, and continues to develop day by day. It has drastically changed the way we look at the world, and has definitely brought people closer together than ever before. Nowadays, technology is developing at a rapid pace. Few examples of these inventions include night vision contact lenses, and invisible chameleon bandages (D'Orazio, and Mine). Technology has clearly made life easier for humans, and helped humans accomplish risky and impossible tasks such as exploring space, using the remotely operated vehicle, in car production, observing explosive devices in military services, and fixing oil spills (Web Design Schools Guide). Technology has impacted the world socially, economically, and politically. Arguably, nothing has changed the world more than technology has since the past 40 years.
