...Effects of Mass Media Worksheet Write brief 250-to 300-word answers to each of the following:   Questions | Answers | What were the major developments in the evolution of mass media during the 20th century? | At first there was the radio, it was a point with some families that it was family time to sit and listen to radio shows. Then the television came along and because back then there were, only a few channels to choose from so it still incorporated family time but it took the discussions afterward out of play. People started watching what was in front of them and not paying attention to the family that was in front of them. Communication ebbed and I think that is why our society is the way it is today. People have senses and with the radio, you used one sense, your hearing. Leaving the option for talking about what they were listening to and being able to communicate as a family. With the television, it took another sense. You have to use hearing and seeing leaving little room for talking about what you watching and listening to. People would watch and hear what the television was placing in front of them and would take it for what it was and say very little to the ones that were around them. I think, based on my grandmother that people would listen to the news, and see the pictures, people would take it for what it was and not question it. Although back then we did not have several ways of voicing our opinions as we do today. The developments in the evolution of......

The term “mass media” made its first impact in the 1920’s when radio, video, and television changed the market. These choices became very popular with a generation that no longer wanted to read in order to receive information and entertainment. Since then mass media has continued to improve the way in which the world receives and distributes entertainment and information. With the invention of new technology in the 20th century the cost of production dropped and increased the amount of films, books, and newspapers that could be produced for larger audiences. While the cost of production dropped that also meant that the profits increased. The world wide web created a forum for spreading new and entertainment even faster. With the concern for saving trees and reducing the amount of carbon in the air digital newspapers and magazines also became a big success for mass media and global news. Today events that take place half way around the world are in local newspapers or on broadcasting stations within minutes of their occurrence.

Effects of Mass Media

... Effects of Mass Media Trevor Stanton HUM/186 January 22, 2014 Effects of Mass Media During the last century there were several major developments in the evolution of mass media. These developments are the evolution of the print, electronic, and digital eras which now encompass modern day media. These three eras have significantly affected American culture and economics, while ushering in a new standard of mass communications. While paper printing can be traced back to China as early as 100 c.e, modern printing did not emerge until the mid-fifteenth century. At that time, the printing press was introduced. The printing press was a conglomerate of machine duplication, rapid duplication, and faster production. These three elements were necessary for mass-market innovation. Information and ideas could now be spread faster and farther than ever before. With the evolution of the printing press, production of mass quantities at lower costs per unit became essential in mass production of other goods. This led to the Industrial Revolution, modern capitalism, and the consumer culture of the twentieth century. “With the revolution in industry came the rise of the middle class and an elite business class of owners and managers who acquired the kind of influence formerly held only by the nobility or the clergy. Print media became key tools that commercial and political leaders used to distribute information and maintain social order”. (Campbell, R., Martin, C., & Fabos, B.......

...University of Phoenix Material Effects of Mass Media Worksheet Write brief 250-to 300-word answers to each of the following: Questions Answers What were the major developments in the evolution of mass media during the 20th century? The most important development of the 20th century concerning the evolution of mass media is technology. In the beginning everyone was finding their information from the newspaper and the telegraph. That information was days old at best for some places in the United States. Then the radio was invented and information was able to be put out to the masses very fast. As technology progressed, the way people received their news went from reading a paper to listening on the radio and eventually in the 60’s to a television set so you no longer had to be anywhere but your living room couch to find out what was going on the world. Shortly after, the computer and internet was invented which led to the biggest leap in my opinion in technology of the century. With a computer everyone that had access to the internet could essentially put whatever they wanted out to the mass media instead of just being big time news stations. News became just a click away from one end of the earth to the other. A very large percentage of the United States probably can’t go 10 minutes without having the urge to look at their cell phone or update their status on a social media website. It’s as if it makes you believe that social media was developed for the sole purpose of......

The newspaper was considered more of an archive in history. People were able to save articles of things that happen in history or go back and read the article whenever they wanted to. The radio was considered a form of mass media being able to reach a large group of people and having the ability to broadcast and have numerous people listening to it at the same time. Unlike in television the reader had to use their imagination while listening to a radio broadcast or reading a newspaper. When television hit the scene not many people owned a television. With the rollout of television until cable television can out people watch a regular scheduled broadcast, there were no options of different channels and shows. The first war that was broadcasted on the air was the Vietnam War. When cable television was introduced people were able to watch certain channels, even channels that was based on a specific topic like sports, history channels and channels just for news. With the internet people have more of an option they can do everything from reading articles, watching television, listening to the......
