What is media?
Media is a tool used to convey mass communication to a larger audience or
market. Up until the 20th century the main source of information were TV,
Radio, Magazine, Newspaper and lately the internet. These mass media plays
a big role in our life.
How it affects us:
The media is a good source of information and entertainment. It has a great
effect on the society and in our life experience, our attitudes, our kids and
our self. We sometimes try to apply these concepts to our everyday life.
Media can be a great source of wisdom and knowledge but we should realize
its impact on our society, our family, our attitudes, our kids and our self.
Influence of mass media
We live in a society that depends on information and communication to keep
moving in the right direction and do our daily activities like work,
entertainment, attitudes, healthcare, education, personal relationships,
travelling and anything else that we have to perform. • Media is the means of
support to the people in the world which shapes their attitude, opinion, and
makes them to think before they start doing a particular work.
Influence on children
Many children watch between two and four hours of television per day. The
presence of role models, how men and women, boys and girls are presented
in the media, powerfully affects boys and girls their role in the world. Some
people allow the children to surf the webs, without noticing that are plenty
of disasters on Internet.
Influence on parents
The media plays a role in providing information and support to parents about
child-rearing. In every category of mass media, from books and magazines,
television and the internet, message about child-rearing are being directed to
parents to an extraordinary level. Yet, little attention is given to the quantity
or quality of those messages.
The media creates the ideal image of a beautiful man and woman and tells
the characteristics of a successful person. Media is one of the successful
instruments to enrich our children, youth and parents to become successful
one. It shapes our attitudes towards our better life. If there is a sport that is
getting a lot of attention by the media and gains popularity among your
friends and society, you will more likely want to practice the sport and be
cool with all your friends. The result is that you will have fun with your
friends and be healthier because of the exercise you are doing.
A negative influence in teenagers is the use of cigars by celebrity movie stars,
the constant exposure of sex images, the excessive images of violence and
exposure to thousands of junk food ads. • Mass media is one of the main
source considered of immorality such as drugs, drinking, pre-marital sex and
adultery are of acceptance today. Media shows us these things. Exposes us to
them. And we are all thinking “if they are doing it, why can’t we?” It is
implanted in our mind that these things are normal.
