  • 1. Historical Over view of Mass Communication
  • 2. History ofMASS MEDIA
  • 3. The history of mass media can be traced back to the days when dramas were performed in various ancientcultures. This was the first time when a form of media was "broadcast" to awider audience. The first dated printed book known is the "Diamond Sutra", printed in China in 868 AD, although itis clear that books were printed earlier. Movable clay type was invented in 1041 in China.
  • 4. • The invention of the printing press in the late 15th century gave rise to some of the first forms of mass communication, by enabling the publication of books and newspapers on a scale much larger than was previously possible
  • 5. • The phrase "the media" began to be used in the 1920s. The notion of "mass media" was generally restricted to print media up until the post-Second World War, when radio, television and video were introduced.
  • 6. • The audio-visual facilities became very popular, because they provided both information and entertainment, because the colour and sound engaged the viewers/listeners and because it was easier for the general public to passively watch TV or listen to the radio than to actively read. In recent times, the Internet become the latest and most popular mass medium. Information has become readily available through websites, and easily accessible through search engines
  • 7. • One can do many activities at the same time, such as playing games, listening to music, and social networking, irrespective of location. Whilst other forms of mass media are restricted in the type of information they can offer, the internet comprises a large percentage of the sum of human knowledge through such things as Google Books. Modern day mass media consists of the internet, mobile phones, blogs, podcasts and RSS feeds
  • 8. • During the 20th century, the growth of mass media was driven by technology, including that which allowed much duplication of material. Physical duplication technologies such as printing, record pressing and film duplication allowed the duplication of books, newspapers and movies at low prices to huge audiences. Radio and television allowed the electronic duplication of information for the first time. Mass media had the economics of linear replication: a single work could make money.
  • 9. The 1 9 0 0’ s•          At the beginning  of the  century, the media  consisted mainly of newspapers and various  periodicals. Newspapers and magazines  dominated the media in the second decade of  the 20th century.•          In 1900, there was no radio, television or  internet; newspapers dominated the media  market, with virtually no competition.•          Today, using available technology, such as  the internet, we can communicate with one  another anywhere on Earth, or Space, instantly.
  • 10. The 4 0’ s• Radio became the dominant form of  media during and after World War II,  as it could provide war information  much faster than newspapers, and  people desired current news of the  war situation and of their relatives  fighting overseas. However  newspapers still supplied daily  information and advertising
  • 11. The 5 0’ s• •          Television came to dominate the  media industry in 1950. Radio and print  media was to compete with television that  seemed to give the best of both media:  pictures and sound. With the advent of  television in the 1950s, print media and  radio were forced to rethink their  approaches towards news and  entertainment
  • 12. Satellite  Communications•          In 1962, with the  communications satellite Telstar I in  space, followed by other satellites,  news reports from around the world  could be transmitted directly, giving  television unprecedented power to  communicate major world events in  real-time.
  • 13. The 8 0’ s• •          There was an explosive growth of  the media in the 1980s, especially  television. Satellite television reported  events across the world live. With  competition from 24-hour cable television  news, many newspapers disappeared.  Cable news and subscription cable  television also rose in popularity,  competing with network television
  • 14. The 90’s        According to a Media Research in May 1994,  98 percent of all American houses has at least  one TV set. 63 percent received at least basic  cable. It is estimated that the average American  spends 20-25% of his or her time with the  television on. According to a Newsweek article  on June 7 1999, the United States is the largest  exporter of television programs and American  movies are in prime time television all over the  world.
  • 15. The Internet Links the World•          As the 20th century was coming to an end,  a new media was born - the Internet. It links  people together through their computer  terminals with modems connected to telephone  lines.•          With the Internet electronic publishing and  chat rooms sprang up, allowing individuals to  express their opinions freely to a large global  audience. With minimal technical know-how,  anyone could put his or her comments and  views on air without the huge expense of  traditional publishing. Also advertising searched  for new ways to use new media to promote their  products.
  • 16.   The number of people accessing the  net nowadays is incalculable. Public  libraries and even cafes offer  consumers Internet access. The  majority of users tend to be university  and other researchers, government  officials, students, scientists and  reporters and journalists.
  • 17. The Media Evolution
  • 18. The Old- AGE Media(PRINT MEDIA)
  • 19. Newspaper• A newspaper is a publication containing news and  information and advertising, usually printed on low-cost  paper called newsprint. It may be general or special  interest, most often published daily or weekly. The first  printed newspaper was published in 1605, and the form  has thrived even in the face of competition from  technologies such as radio and television. Recent  developments on the Internet are posing major threats to  its business model, however. Paid circulation is declining  in most countries, and advertising revenue, which makes  up the bulk of a newspapers income, is shifting from  print to online; some commentators, nevertheless, point  out that historically new media such as radio and  television did not entirely supplant existing.
  • 20. Book• A book is a collection of sheets of  paper, parchment or other material  with a piece of text written on them,  bound together along one edge within  covers. A book is also a literary work  or a main division of such a work. A  book produced in electronic format is  known as an e-book.
  • 21. Magazine• A magazine is a periodical publication  containing a variety of articles, generally  financed by advertising and/or purchase  by readers.• Magazines are typically published weekly,  biweekly, monthly, bimonthly or quarterly,  with a date on the coverthat is in advance  of the date it is actually published. They  are often printed in color on coated paper,  and are bound with a soft cover.
  • 22. • Magazines fall into two broad categories:  consumer magazines and business  magazines. In practice, magazines are a  subset of periodicals, distinct from those  periodicals produced by scientific, artistic,  academic or special interest publishers  which are subscription-only, more  expensive, narrowly limited in circulation,  and often have little or no advertising.
  • 23. • Magazines can be classified as:• General interest magazines (e.g. Frontline, India Today, The Week , The Sunday Times etc.)• Special interest magazines (womens, sports, business, scuba diving, etc.)
  • 24. New-age media(DIGITAL MEDIA)
  • 25. Internet• The Internet (also known simply as "the Net" or less precisely as "the Web") is a more interactive medium of mass media, and can be briefly described as "a network of networks". Specifically, it is the worldwide, publicly accessible network of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP). It consists of millions of smaller domestic, academic, business, and governmental networks, which together carry various information and services, such as e-mail, online chat, file transfer, and the interlinked Web pages and other documents of the World Wide Web.
  • 26. Blogs (web logs)• Blogging, too, has become a pervasive form of media . A blog is a website, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or interactive media such as images or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order, with most recent posts shown on top. Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images and other graphics, and links to other blogs, web pages, and related media. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.
  • 27. Mobile Phones• Mobile phones were introduced in Japan in 1979 but became a mass media only in 1998 when the first downloadable ringing tones were introduced in Finland. Soon most forms of media content were introduced on mobile phones, and today the total value of media consumed on mobile towers over that of internet content, and was worth over 31 billion dollars in 2007 (source Informa). The mobile media content includes over 8 billion dollars worth of mobile music (ringing tones, ringback tones, truetones, MP3 files, karaoke, music videos, music streaming services etc.); over 5 billion dollars worth of mobile gaming; and various news, entertainment and advertising services.
