So…I’m a ‘Media Prosumer!’

Media is something that I encounter every day. Whether it’s watching a two hour film on Netflix or reading the BBC news for five minutes, each area of media has an impact on my life. However, there are a lot of different reasons as to why people from all over the world, use media.

These purposes include:

-‘ENT’ (Entertainment/ Diversion) Using media as a source of entertainment eg: YouTube, Spotify and Netflix.

-‘SI’ (Social Interaction) Contacting and interacting with other media users through apps such as: Snapchat, Messenger and Whatsapp.

-‘PI’ (Personal Identity) Sharing information about your personal details so that other media users can learn from it. Eg: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

-‘ED’ (Information/ Surveillance) Sources of media that share factual information. Eg: Daily Mail, BBC News, Radio, and the Telegraph.

“The people will believe what the media tells them to believe”

_____George Orwell_____

I will now be sure to interpret these areas of media into my Music Magazine and am aware that my work will have the purpose of entertaining, informing and interacting with my audience.
