Throughout the years, technology has impacted our daily lives. Specifically, digital media, which is our smart phones, laptops, video games, and anything else that is computerized. We rely on digital media through everyday tasks because it has proven to be beneficial in navigating and connecting us with the world, however there is great debate whether our technology has any detrimental effect on our cognitive development and skills. As we know, technology has become a great part of our identity. Although, there is evidence that digital media has various benefits and risks for our cognition. Nevertheless, it remains a topic of discussion since technology continues to thrive and become part of our daily routine.
Chassiakos and colleagues (2016) discusses the costs and benefits of digital and social media use in children and adolescents. There are various ways digital and social media may impact the child's development. The authors explain that digital media may improve cognitive and social development for young children depending on the amount of exposure, type of digital content, and active parental guidance. Additionally, the authors explain how digital media advocates social engagement and community that helps teenager's development and self–esteem. However, the authors provide plenty of evidence that the use of digital and social media may be linked to the risk of obesity, cognitive development, safety, mental health, behavioral risks, and sleep deprivation. For instance,
Disadvantages Of Electronic Media
Electronic communications have taken over young generations life. College and high school students prefers talking on social media rather than face to face conversations. Students get most of the news or information from the social media according to Rick Nauert, a senior news editor, "For most of the students reporting in the study, information of all kinds comes in an undifferentiated wave to them via social media" (Nauert). Electronic communications have disadvantages on students' life. The articles, "Harrisburg U.'s Social–Media Blackout Is More of a Brownout," by Don Troop and Growing Up Digital, Wired for Distraction," by Matt Richtel discusses about the impact of social media on students' life. All three articles have a commonality about the side effects of social media and its use. Over usage of social media made young generation addicted to social media, unable to concentrate on study, and encourage the universities to block social media on the campus network as an experiment. Many students are addicted to social media. According to the article, "College Students 'Addicted' to Social Media, study Finds," the students were "addicted" to the social ties– friendship and relationships– with other(Nauert). Students have become so addicted to social media that it is arduous for them to live without it. In fact, "students describe their feelings when they have to abstain from using media in literally the same terms associated with drug and alcohol addictions: in withdrawal, frantically craving, very anxious, extremely antsy, miserable, jittery, and crazy" (Nauret). Students get so much involve in social media that they forget almost everything else. According to the researchers, "The risk, they say, is that developing brains can become more easily habituated than adult brains to constantly switching tasks – and less able to sustain attention" (Richtel). Young students are more likely to become an addicted very quickly. Many students get most of their information via social media because they are constantly using social media in their daily life. For instance, "For most of the students reporting in the study, information of all kinds comes in an undifferentiated wave to them via social media. If a bit of

The Impact of Electronic Media and the Internet on Print Media
New technology has developed rapidly since the birth of the internet, and it continues to expand and evolve affecting many domains, especially the print media. This essay will investigate the influence and impact of current technology of the electronic media and World Wide Web on print media, and how future developments in technology will affect the future direction of the traditional newspaper. The way in which "Bloggers" have influenced traditional journalism will also be explored and how this has affected the journalism profession. In addition, the negative impacts of how the electronic media is being used as a political forum will also be investigated. Finally, the...show more content...
It has been reported that the future of electronic information is not embraced by a lot of the news media as free interactive services generate low levels of interest with pay–per–call services as the main source of revenue. However, Rupert Murdoch saw the opportunities offered by new technology, and through diversification created an international press, followed by a television domain, creating a truly global media empire (Shawcross:1999).
However, other print media have resisted being fully represented on the web. Interestingly, reports claim the traditional newspaper will continue to survive due to common factors such as the much loved writer or columnist, local community news and the personal link to world news (Fulton 1996). However it could be argued that these same factors are applicable to the internet. Melinda McAdams, a primary contributor in the setup of the Washington's Posts online service, recognizes the above mentioned factors also support the internet inferring "a person with a lot of on–line experience thinks more about connections, organization, movement within and among sets of information, and communication among different people" (Fulton:1996) demonstrating that the similar relationships can be formed with journalists over the internet.
Furthermore, as the World Wide Web provides an interactive stage, the accuracy and legitimacy of news items could be
Technology and the Media Essay
Technology and the Media
In this essay, British historian and broadcaster Asa Briggs looks at how technological advances made in recent decades have created a revolution in the media, allowing people to communicate in ways they had never dreamed of. Briggs notes that although these new modes of communication–including the television, the personal computer, the Internet, and other digital technologies–are available throughout many parts of the world, these media may be used in different ways depending upon the prevailing political and social circumstances. Briggs also raises questions about the future of the media and how the unfolding media revolution will affect people's lives.

It was within the computer age that the term "information society" acquired wide currency to describe the context within which we now live. Advanced countries, it was claimed, were evolving from an industrial to an information society. The term "industrial revolution" had been used before the term "communications revolution," and now these two "revolutions" were compared. They had each influenced both work and leisure and how we think and feel both about place and time, but in each case there had been controversies about their economic, political, social, and cultural implications. "Benefits" were weighed against "harmful" outcomes. Generalizations proved difficult. The press and the journalists who wrote for it had always had their critics.
Television was attacked more comprehensively for "consuming much [time and] energy" while ignoring "the fundamentals of life."
Not everyone agreed–or agrees–about the "causes" of the communications revolution. Were there single causes of particular episodes in it? The words "cause" and "effect," which have been applied to each technological change in turn, from the steam engine to the computer, are quite inadequate. It has never been possible to isolate each single effect, big or small. Technology by itself does not explain. The same technology was used in quite different ways in different political and social contexts.

Ray, et al.(5) from India reported that children having exposure to violence through media had poorer school performance and its impact on their psychosocial adjustments was detrimental. Another study from India showed that vivid display of violence through media (9/11 terrorist attack) caused stress in adolescents(6). Yama, et al.(7) described that some of the fears, tensions, bad dreams and tendencies towards delinquencies of children are a result of frequent and a regular exposure to murder–mystery movies, and stories filled with violence and torture that children view on TV and movies. Association between TV viewing and suicidal behavior has also been reported from India(8). Both content exposure and screen time of media had independent detrimental associations with school performance in children and adolescents (9). Hopf, et al.(10) showed that the more frequently children view horror and violent films during childhood, and the more frequently they play violent electronic games at the beginning of adolescence, the higher will these students' violence and delinquency be at the age of 14. Primack, et al.(11) showed that excessive TV viewing in adolescence is a risk factor for development of depression in young adulthood. TV viewing may play an exacerbating, if not causal, role in the development of attention–deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)(12). This hypothesis is consistent
In the 1970s and 1980s, books, newspapers, and magazines were printed on large presses by national and multinational publishing houses. Print was a flourishing industry that had managed to overcome any challengers, including television and the radio. Any legitimate writer, academic researcher, scientist, or journalist was published in print. For those seeking the most up–to–date, respected, and accurate information, books, periodicals, and newspapers were the chosen source. This is as it had been for many years, and it seemed that this would be so for hundreds of years to come. Until, when in the early 1990s, a relatively unheard of new technology called the Internet, which had begun in the early 1960s as a government and scientific computer network, began to emerge on college campuses and in other areas (Courtright,...show more content...
Moreover, we can conclude that these media have a massive contribution in the process of mass communications. Although, that many people thought that traditional media would be replaced and converged or digital media would take over or supplant the old media, nevertheless then the old media still existing. But to neglect or ignore that, the books, for example, cannot be replaced by television, while the attraction of internet and web cannot fully overtake the fascination of newspapers and magazines, because nowadays we can see that people are still buying newspaper and hard copy books since it fulfils their needs and fits in their lifestyle. Digital media have not replaced printed media, but they have taken over a large portion of the audience. As, technological innovations surface and are adopted into our daily lives, old habits do change. One thing that will not change is the audience's desire to get news, information and entertainment via mass media, whether that means paper delivery or electronic delivery of
Impact of Electronic Media on Cognitive Development of Children There have been many changes in the technological scene in the last few years. This has prompted the argument on what people stand to benefit from these advancements. This is why there have been many studies and researches that are all intended to show how the electronic media assists in learning amongst children. However, there has been little attention as to what the electronic media does to the same children. The electronic media has become a favorite amongst the learners and in particular children. It is imperative to note that the learning process is not passive. This is because the children do not just heed to the instructions and assume that anything is learnt. The process of learning is active and cognitive. Therefore, the environment under which a child is in has a significant influence on the learning process. It is vivid from this argument that the media has a significant role in the shaping of the children. Electronic media is very beneficial in the learning process but it is imperative that there are regulations because it has a dominant role in cognitive development of children. Even at the most tender of ages, children are already active in the use of the media. The television is the main media that the children are exposed to at this early age. It may seem that the children do not understand anything in the televisions and could lead to some disputing the idea of its involvement in
Marketers are faced with new challenges and opportunities within this digital age. Digital marketing is the utilization of electronic media by the marketers to promote the products or services into the market. The main objective of digital marketing is attracting customers and allowing them to interact with the brand through digital media. This article focuses on the importance of digital marketing for both marketers and consumers. We examine the effect of digital marketing on the firms' sales. Additionally the differences between traditional marketing and digital marketing in this paper are presented. This study has described various forms of digital marketing, effectiveness of it and the impact it has on firm's sales. The examined sample consists of one hundred fifty firms and fifty executives which have been randomly selected to prove the effectiveness of digital marketing. Collected data has been analyzed with the help of various statistical tools and techniques.
Keywords: Digital Marketing, Promotion, Effectiveness, Customer Reach
1. Introduction Digital marketing is one type of marketing being widely used to promote products or services and to reach consumers using digital channels. Digital marketing extends beyond internet marketing including channels that do not require the use of Internet. It includes mobile phones (both SMS and MMS), social media marketing, display advertising, search engine marketing and many other forms of digital media.
Is Electronic Media beneficial in Children's Education?
Over the last decades, it is generally realized that the educational technology has developed dramatically. Electronic media has benefitted the system of education in an enormous way. Electronic media is the media which uses electronics or electromechanical energy for the audience to access the content. Video recording, audio recording, multimedia presentations, CD–ROM and online content are all forms of electronic media and any equipment used in electronic communication process such as radio, television, desktop computers, laptops, electronic whiteboards, and electronic textbooks is also considered as electronic media.

Therefore, with the viewpoint of the writers it elaborates that mobile devices, internet and graphical games are the three types of e–learning that has created curiosity, a sense of social interaction and eagerness to learn new thing among students and the content of these technologies are based on recent curriculum. This helps a student to follow well defined instructions and to share opnions and discussions online for better assessment.
In addition to this Poore (2013) argued that the new social media has reformed the traditional media resources such as the usage of newspapers, books and magazines have reduced due to the availability of information on online resources such as Moodle and WebCT. Hence, it also provides intellectual benefits such as children can learn how to analyze, interpret and synthesize the information. Okoro (2012) acknowledge that integrating social media technologies into higher education can enhance ongoing communication between teacher and student which helps in promoting collaborative learning activities. His findings laid stress on effectiveness of teaching and student learning outcomes with an appropriate example of understanding the usage of electronic media in making strategies and practicing skills in business

By gaining insight on media's role in the community, individuals will better understand the enormous responsibility given to those who are chosen to monitor this medium.
The premise of my thesis is that electronic media has become the leading source society utilizes to obtain information on world events. My research shows how electronic media has grown over the years from being a medium for news and entertainment purposes into the complex powerhouse it is today replacing print as the number one source to obtain information on past, present, and future events around the world. Inquiry as to how electronic media has gained so much popularity that many are inclined to choose this form of communication over print news publications has been examined by means of primary and secondary research and a conclusion has been drawn that will support my position about electronic media's impact on the community as a whole.
As I have been exposed to broadcast media for over ten years (both in academia and professional experience) and have no proficient exposure to print, my research could be interpreted as being biased toward media. As I am also a student continuing my education in the field of media communication, my thesis paper might be assessed by others as the work of a novice however, I will make every effort to remain objective in my approach to conduct practical research

The media fraternity and communications departments are rapidly growing and improving in the quality of services they offer. This growth is largely attributed to technological developments and advancements. In this paper we seek to establish whether the shifts in technology have had any impact on people. We base our study on whether the use of micro–blogging (Weibo) has affected how Chinese citizens use the old media and how Weibo and its users have influenced the reporting of news events in china since it came into being in 2009.

Granju (2008) points out that blogs can be used to enhance jokes on what is in the news. The fact that few media stations are using blogs for coverage is posing a serious threat on coverage. This is because many people are now using networking sites and blogs. Those who operate blogs are not qualified to work as media professionals but still do their best to provide information which is widely used by blog users. This reduces the number of viewers or listeners who rely on television for information. Those who operate the blogs play a significant role in providing information to citizens. Blog operators provide information on the wrongs done by the countries governing body and the sector in charge of providing information. In China, internet is not limited or restricted as much as in the information sector making it easy for people to access data. In one of the cases, heads of provinces in China recruited a group of 15 men to find out the real facts of a certain case which was under a prominent blog operator Zhao Li. Later it was found that Zhao was getting funds from the governing body to provide good findings on the case that were favorable to the government. This did not go well as people held different opinions about the case. It was discovered that the Chinese governing body has more than 30,000 such blogs under its influence (Liu 2009). In another incidence, a man lost his job after blog operators highlighted his $15,000 wrist watch. The use of
The hand of electronic media has been extending its reach into many different aspects of our lives throughout the rise of more advanced technology, starting with the advent of the radio. This new and exciting age of electronic media feeds into the amazement of our nation, by creating outrageous and seemingly impossible ways to become connected, that the generation of the radio would have never imagined. Electronic media has produced a substantial amount of positive impacts in our society, like allowing us the instant connectivity to world problems and news, but with the invention of the television, we as a society fell into the trap that television show producers laid out for us. We feel as though we now have a need for every snippet or shred of news and information to be presented to us in an entertaining form. This need to feel entertained at all costs stretches into the realm of religious televised programming as well; to aid in the success of television show ratings, producers of religious programming have removed any substance or deep spiritual meaning from their programs in order to appeal to a wider scope of the nation. This indeed seems to be the greatest expense that the growth of electronic media renders since it rattles the nation's religious core values and morals. The requirement of having an entertainment based outlook on society is a learned behavior that develops as soon as a child starts watching television. Using entertaining methods to teach toddlers

They should not let out their passwords and personal details to anyone. Kids should be restricted from viewing certain contents in websites. Also care should be taken to ensure that kids do not sit in front of television and internet too much.
A CAREER IN ELECTRONIC MEDIA:
A career in electronic media means being creative and thinking out of the box. The young generation has a fancy for electronic media as it is regarded as a glamorous field. As technology is improving and getting updated every day there are plenty of opportunities in field of electronic media and there is satisfying source of income. Many companies are in continuous need of quality professional from the field of electronic media. The want for people of the technical section is in greater demand and has better prospect. There are various colleges offering this course. A course in journalism or literature is good enough for a career in electronic media. Anyone can freelance irrespective of their educational qualification provided they have creativity.

This leads them to engage in crimes, prostitution, etc, just to meet up. 1.2 Students and Teenager in Brief Teenagers are also referred to as adolescents from the age of 13–19, and this is a period of transition: biological, psychological, social, economic; whereby they become wiser, more sophisticated and better able to make their own decisions. They become more self–aware, more independent, and more concerned about what the future holds. there are three fundamental changes that define this period: the biological – the onset of puberty; cognitive – the emergence of more advanced thinking abilities and the social – the transition into new roles in the society. There are five sets of developmental issues paramount during adolescence: identity, autonomy, intimacy, sexuality and achievement. These are sets of psycho–social issues that represent basic developmental challenges that all high school students face as they grow and change: discovering and understanding who they are as individuals (identity); establishing a healthy sense of independence (autonomy); forming close and caring relationships with other people (intimacy); expressing sexual feelings and enjoying physical contacts with others (sexuality); and being successful and competent members of society (achievement).

The Problem Of Electronic Media
In the previous sections of this paper I have sought to provide the context necessary to understand the significant and sustainable transformation undergone by Croatian media in the years following the Yugoslav Wars of Dissolution. It has been through this analysis that I have endeavored to illuminate some of the many issues facing the Croatian media systems as a whole, and to establish the historical background necessary to understand the current state of media throughout the country. In this section I will argue that the Law on Electronic Media has not only failed to be implemented properly, but that cultural, political, and economic factors have resulted in a climate that has substantiality impaired the ability and willingness of the nation to fully comply with EU standards governing media. I will establish this claim through exploring past and current problems with the Law on Electronic Media relying on scholarly sources and original analysis of a few of the many barriers currently facing the law and its full implementation. While many scholars have sought to understand issues of compliance with EU law across the European Union and among new member states, few studies have sought to examine in depth the failed implementation of a single law. This is an approach I believe to be particularly pertinent to illuminating those issues and underlying problems that may directly impede implementation at the micro–level. The Law on Electronic Media represents the ideal

We see notable risks in a pure laissez–faire "let them work it out for themselves" approach. Large amounts of money, resources, and effort are being committed (by government agencies, by academic departments, by publishers, by professional societies, and by individual researchers) to the development, maintenance, and promotion of various forms of communications technologies for use in global science. However, in the absence of a valid theory of how scholarly fields adopt and shape technology, scientists and policy–makers are left only with context–free models, and hence resources may be committed to projects that are not self–sustainable, that wither, and that do not effectively improve the scientific communications system of the field. The consequences may not only be sub–optimal use of financial resources, but also wasted effort on the part of individual researchers, and even data languishing in marginal, decaying, and dead systems and formats. The purpose of this JASIS perspectives article is to deepen our understanding of the future of electronic communications in science. It is difficult to predict the longterm future, as too many contingencies can and will shape long–term outcomes to make meaningful predictions. One may casually predict that that many if not all research journals will issue electronic editions in the 21st century; however, more complex issues about the role of
Use Of Electronic Media
I have heard people say that someone is "on their phone too much". I guess this statement could describe myself because I spend almost any moment when I am not busy on my iPhone. In fact, I have even spent some money on subscriptions for mobile apps. But at times, I give up usage of electronic media to focus on life's simple pleasures. By keeping track of my use of electronic media, I have gained a clear understanding of how such usage affects my life. On Saturday, August 26, 2017, I used my iPad for over five hours. I spent over three hours playing video games on my family's Xbox One console, almost 2 ½ hours using my MacBook Pro laptop, and over two hours watching television. I only used my iPhone for 15 minutes. Two days later, I used my phone for over five hours, while I surfed the Internet on my computer for nearly half the time. I spent more than a half hour on my tablet and about the same amount of time on a Windows computer at school. And the next day, I spent over 4 ½ hours on my phone and more than 3 ½ hours using my tablet. I used a Mac computer at school for more than an hour and my laptop for more than half the time. I think my use of electronic media definitely reflects my personality and interests. I like to stay informed of current events, so I constantly check my phone for notifications I need to clear, as well as my Gmail and Facebook accounts. I enjoy watching true crime television series, including American Greed, Snapped, Deadly Sins, and Deadly Women. I rely on the Xfinity Stream, Oxygen Now, and ID (Investigation Discovery) GO to view this genre of shows. I like to unwind with a game every once in awhile, and I often play Bee Brilliant, Family Feud 2, Family Feud Live, Wheel of Fortune, and Wheel of Fortune Free Play on both my phone and my tablet. Very rarely do I play video games on a console, but I enjoy driving games, including Grand Theft Auto V. I play this game on my family's Xbox One, while my father and brother usually monopolize it. I also watch my two favorite game shows, Wheel of Fortune and Family Feud, on a high–definition television, my phone, or my tablet. I am an aspiring musician, so I spend time drafting lyrics on the Songwriter's Pad app on my tablet or create
How the Electronic Media Influences Politics in America The electronic media has much influence on politics in America. On the TV, radio, internet, and press, politics are presented in many different ways and with many different views. The media can be used to influence the people in both positive and negative ways. This paper will outline these influences and state examples in a variety of different platforms.
The media has created an impressive increase in literacy among people about politics and political issues. Whether you are watching a presidential debate or listening to the radio on a story about political issues, you will hear a variety of words and terms that, without these forms of media, would

Between the presidential election of 1992 and 1996, there was a higher national voting turnout by 9%. This means that the media has positively influenced the voting statistics.
One of the negative effects of the medias influence on the people is creating a difficulty to remain nuetral while reporting political news. When an issue is addressed improperly through the media, it creates confusion and an inability to take a certain side on an issue. For instance, if a news reporter were to make negative references on a certain issue, the people watching will be more influenced to take a negative approach to the issue.
This can cause much confusion since a different reporter could take a positive approach and turn the peoples decision that way.
Yet another negative way that the media has been known to affect the people is by falsely stating the news. It is hard to believe, but in the election of 19??, (i'm sorry, i forgot the names and dates of this election. its the one where Trueman won, but the newspaper says the other guy won. Please forgive me and just do this sentence by yourself)
In this case, the press printed a newspaper reporting that Harry Trueman had lost the election, when in fact he had won. This questioned both the integrety of the press and the confidence of its readers.
One last negative influence of the media is when the media overplays a certain issue. This can be related to in a very recent
Pros And Cons Of Electronic Communication
Pros and Cons of Electronic communication
There are many species in the world, however, human is the only one who can talk, understand, think and act according to his own wish. This means human is the only species who can communicate with other humans. Thus, communication plays a vital part in human life. In simple terms, communication is effectively interacting with each other. Defining communication, it can be the process by which people exchange information or express their thoughts and feelings (Longman Dictionary, 2011). Some of the earlier methods used for communication have been visual and audio in the form of gestures, sound and pictures/drawings. Technology today has transformed these sounds and gestures to produce speech, videos, films, posters and theatre. The evolution of different means has opened up a vast potential for communication (unesco.org).
