Digital technologies have taken advantage of computers and the internet have led to products and services that provide information or entertainment. Social media, blogs, and online news outlets are referred to as new media. These channels of communication have a great impact on the society, businesses and politics. New media is a relative term, that has been defined by some many, but several practical and theoretical considerations help to clarify what new media is. The difference between new media and old media is that old media is for part mass media and new media is highly interactive while old media is not.
Understanding Changes In Technology & The Internet, In The U.S In The Late 20th Century And/or Early 21st Century (1980 – 2000’s) Abstract This paper explores the major political, social and economic changes from 1980 to present, most importantly changes in internet and technology in the U.S particularly during the late 20th Century. This paper defines “internet age”, how it developed particularly during the late 20th Century and/or early 21st Century (1980s – 200s) and more importantly, what it felt like living through these important times in history and how these developments have helped shape the future of technology especially in the U.S. The Internet age has in the past been defined in various ways. One, it is an umbrella term for the period during the late 20th Century and/or early 21st Century (1980 – 2000) in which information made its way around the world making it possible for people to communicate around the world (Computer Desktop Encyclopedia). It has also been defined as the period in time when abundant publication, manipulation and consumption of information by various gadgets such as computers and IT networks took place usually during the late 20th Century and/or early 21st Century (1980 – 2000), (Farlex, The Free Dictionary).
The third “paradigmatic change” which is considered to have brought the most radical changes came along with the development of digital technology and the introduction of the Internet in the 1990s. The development of digital technology in the music industry has alternated how the industry operated and its centre of focus shifted from the physical to the virtual (Wikström 2009:4). According to Warr and Goode (2011:126), the introduction of the Internet and the digitalisation of music changed activities that the music industry traditionally undertook including the production, distribution, promotion and consumption of music.
But recently, with the development of Information Technology (IT), new media started to gain a foothold and occupied a more prominent role in the information industry, and it looks like the new media is slowly taking over the traditional media, to the extent of replacing it. Although old media are still effective, more and more people are switching to new media to meet their satisfaction. “New media is the products and services that provide information or entertainment using computers or the internet, and not by traditional methods such as television and newspapers” (Cambridge University Press, 2016). By using new media, people can easily access to different sources of digital media such as online newspapers, websites, blogs and social media. The development of new media also creates more job opportunities and hence enhance the economy.
Mass Media Kamoren Pearce HUM/186 December 4, 2017 Allyson Wells Mass Media Mass media has changed so much over the years. Before modern media was invented, people view media in the newspapers. Today, media is seen is so many different forms. They are television, satellites, radio, cell phones, newspapers, and many more.

Introduction- What is technology? Technology is a study or use of the mechanical arts and applied sciences according to the Oxford Dictionary. In our opinion, technology is somewhat that overhauled the current competitive world, where we can see everyone accessing mobile phones, laptops, computers and upgraded gadgets in public places, work places and even learning institutions. Modern technologies are replacing human determinations, strengths and their actions. For example, in 1982, the “Times Magazine” published a computer’s image as their cover page of the year instead of personality’s photographs.
New media technologies allude to the move from an analog age into a digital one, allowing for real time reaction. They tend to include things like wireless internet and smart devices which facilitate the use of social media networking sites. It is through these channels that people have become both users and producers of content and ultimately culture. Wireless internet (wifi) enables people across the globe to share, comment and discuss content posted on the internet from anywhere they are
Introduction These days, new media is on the rise and many people would say that it is gradually eclipsing old media. But what is new media and old media? According to the Oxford Dictionary, new media is defined as a form of mass communication using digital technologies like the internet while old media is defined as means of mass communication that are not interactive or do not involve the internet ("old media"). This topic is hugely relevant to our daily life as we live in an age where technology is slowly overtaking print and traditional forms of media, where the rise of Digital Media and Social Media, has drastically changed our lifestyles, socially and economically. Is traditional media really going the way of the Dinosaurs?
Mass communication has emerged with the new media environment, as there was a huge change in the internet and digitals televisions. New media environment changed communication as it became two-way communication, the media became more abundant and new important terms emerged like media convergence and electronic commerce. Media convergence is a very important
The network formed is known as the Internet which is a network formed by associating different computer networks from the entire world. The Internet network was invented in the US, in 1969. The Defence Department of US formed the Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) which evoked the network. The number of users expanded rapidly throughout the years majorly in business transactions. However, the internet grows its advantages and disadvantages, therefore many initiatives were conducted to improve the Internet.
