print or digital? new or old?

Posted on: September 28, 2010

  • Print is presented the old media : newspaper,magazine
  • Digital is presented the new media: Ipad, YouTube,Facebook

The common knowledge that everyone know is old media is using the tons of paper and fuel.This is negative impact to our environment.Even it’s absolutely right that,media is powerful,but by being a popular forms of media, environment issues should be ignore?Where there a lot of natural disaster,what the media will do beside announcing it to their newspaper or magazine? Endism theory(Naughton,2006) is not exist because audiences still research on professional sources,but audiences needs variety as something closer to their lifestyle.

The ‘hot’ trend.

What does Ipad from Apple company benefit us?Its expensive and famous with application including games.Its does benefit us to the customer who support technologies and to modern customer that support the idea that technologies make their life easier.The most interesting about Ipad is the old form of media now is inside the new form of media.The Ipad offer application for newspaper and magazine.(Alvares,2010)The application its much cheaper than the customer by per issues or month.(Alvares,2010)

YouTube as a new propaganda.

Propaganda could be positive and negative,and i’m not in any side.Propaganda suppose to influence the viewer as political agenda to makes temporary attention from the supporter.( new United of State president, Barrack Obama used YouTube as his political platforms is a sign of positive act.YouTube major user is teenager and its show Obama try to win the supporter opinion by various of channel not only by conservative platform as broadcast in prime television and radio,campaign or forum.Beside the political platforms, YouTube is a freedom media platforms.Media now is not totally control by the powerful person with special interest or being hegemonized.(Libertarian,2007)The audiences gain more power to judge itself the level of purity of the issues without being mind-set control by what the media with special interest try to influence.In simple way,there no censorship as the audiences have the opportunities to watch real life situation or the true color about the personality,political leaders,celebrities not only what the media or advertisement present to the audiences. YouTube become the supplementary information for the audiences to have better knowledge more than mainstream media could offer.
