Influence of Entertainment Media

Media has grown with the advance of technology, all including the radio, newspaper, magazines, television, and the internet. The internet is a big media development. We live in a society that depends on the internet for majority of things and in the next five years everything will be done by the internet or the media. Media affect people in many ways, some are good and some are bad. The media has its way of showing us information through news channels, travel and other educational shows. Kids benefit from watching these, since it can boost self-esteem, heighten interest levels in a particular subject, or encourage them to ask relevant questions (According to "Intelligent Life on the Web" 2012).

The media can be used for a good thing or a bad thing; it really depends on the person using media sources. Media influences culture should give you an idea on just how powerful a tool it is in our present day and age. No matter where you go there is media and culture around you.

Everyone has their own opinion of media, it can be a positive and negative on social influence. I think that it can be a positive and negative influence, because it depends if a person uses the media as something to learn from. Media can be hurtful and it can be a negative influence in that way. The media has brought the people all over the world very closer. We have to take the positive aspects and use it for good purpose. The media and public should help to drive away the negative effects of the media (According to "Answer.com" 2012).
