Media Diary

Maitha S

Fall 2012

Media is the main mass of communication; it can be traditional media like Television, radio, news papers, magazines or digital like DVD’s, cable, CD’s, MP3’s, World Wide Web and Email. Media takes a big part of our lives too many people media holds every thing they want they build their own world and live in it.

Before doing the media diary I knew that I don’t use media that much specially my phone but I discovered that I do, I use my phone to call, text message and instagram the most. I do use other media for sure, I really enjoy playing video games with my family I even once video shot us playing Wii for several days and made a video using IMovie. I made a chart using the media diary to make it easier for me to see how much I use media and what time, so it shows from the chart that I use media a lot in the weekends, using numbers I calculated it as 460 minutes maximum in the weekends and 93 minutes minimum throughout the week days.

I use my phone (SAMSUNG Galaxy Note) to call in emergencies or certain situations because I mostly Skype if I want to chat with my friends which is in that case I used my laptop, I also use my phone for instagram a lot, I can spend an hour just using instagram posting photos or even looking up accounts following fashion blogs and every thing about fashion.

I consider my self a multi tasker for example I would do my homework on the laptop while listening to music and surfing the Internet! I also tend to write in the living room while the family is watching television and my brothers playing around, but I mostly work in my sister’s room on one disk with her and we always go off topic and chat about different stuff. I don’t know why exactly I work in such conditions but the most important thing is I do it well and accomplish my work. Actually right now am writing this in my sister’s room with the music on!!

I would say that I mostly use digital media, its not that I never use...
