You can read a short about me here.
It’s a short introduction to me. But, here I’ll offer a further introduction to my content.
I am studying new media to further my understanding of sociology and social influences to implement in my studies of psychology. I am constantly interested in analyzing how media, culture, and society influence the individual. Media is a very important part of how society builds itself. It defines social groups, creates it’s own culture, and influences our intake and output of information.
We learn from a young age that the news offers information, and proceed to expand on this knowledge as we grow. We extend our news influence as we get older, and can pick and choose our preferred sources of information. This picking and choosing is an important part of how we come to define our social circles and culture.
My studies will be documented on this blog as a portfolio. I will be sharing my opinions and the knowledge that I gain.
I believe media is one of the biggest influences on our belief systems, ideologies, and world views. Because of this, studying and understanding the creation and distribution of media is key to understanding our society and the individuals that live in it.
This journey will focus on expanding my understanding of new media as well as furthering my understanding of our ever-evolving society.
