Discuss.IntroductionMedia convergence has become an issue over the last ten years as new technologies such as the Internet and computers have become intermingled with ‘traditional media’ such as television and newspapers.

What would you do if you knew that just by watching an advertisement you can be led to drug problems, health issues, or even death ? Today's America revolves around technology, entertainment, and other various types of media. Each of them provide advertisements. There are advertisements all over the place, that advertise clothes, cell phones, and even food. The things that are on the advertisements can have an influence on whomever watches them.

While the word of mouth has been recognised, only in the recent times, as an innovative mode of marketing, it is seldom acknowledged that this is a part of a long standing oral tradition in certain societies, especially India. My dissertation looks at this connection and is in that sense situated between marketing and communication. While studying the present day campaigns, it examines the eternal element of storytelling in Indian culture and is hence positioned at a juncture between the timely...
Fashion magazines are now a way of learning more about our external appearance and the latest fashion, which type of heels and dresses are in or out. However what happens when these magazines promote a false image? In such magazines teenage girls dressed like adult women as thin as skeletons, stare back at us. These girls were meant to be a healthy, inspiring, achievable and realistic image for women. The question is, are they? If this is not realistic, what happens to teenage readers of those...
For this question, I have chosen television as an older form of media. I have chosen this, because it is one of the most popular forms of media and has changed markedly over the past eighty years or so. One reason for this change can be attributed to the rise of the Internet, a newer form of media, which I will use to demonstrate the changes to the more traditional media. Since its launch in 1990, it has gradually informed, restricted and ultimately changed the way TV is run and experienced. I...

Following September 11, 2001, the world would never be the same again. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that the resulting war on terrorism has its roots in events that occurred long before that fateful day when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon came under attack. For example, there were the bombings of the USS Cole, the embassies in Africa, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The media has for some time failed to adequately inform the public of the horrible situations that...
Before the advent of television and mass media, most people did not see what other people looked like around the world or even in the next village or town. Today we are bombarded with thousands of images from movies, television, magazines, newspapers, the internet and music videos. The media has been criticized for using images of people that don't represent reality. It seems that everywhere we look we see young, big breasted, long-legged, broad shouldered women who are unbelievably thin. If we...
From a consumer perspective, the shift toward online advertising is caused by adoption of electronic communications, end-user engagements in the content creation process, and the emergence of new communication channels. This has opened up the playing field and allowed new forms of advertising to emerge and advertising spending on electronic media to grow rapidly. Even so, advertisers need to consider how receptive consumers are toward advertising and how their media consumption is changing....
The Internet has helped people do amazing things, ranging from raising money for disaster victims to giving status updates on Facebook and Twitter during a people's revolution. Some use the Internet for less noble causes for staying in touch with friends and family through social networking sites, reviewing movies, television, or various other media on blogs, or just watching videos made by people with too much free time. In America, the internet is a free expression of ideas with little...
