New Media and Society

Karun Shetty (Author)

New media is a broad term in media studies that emerged in the later part of the 20th century. Most technologies described as new media are digital, often having characteristics of being manipulated, networkable, dense, compressible, and interactive. Some examples may be the Internet, websites, computer multimedia, computer games, CD-ROMS, and DVDs. Advanced technologies have created a communication revolution, and the individual, through the advent of computers, has become an active participant in this process. The social aspect, therefore, is as important as technologically advanced media systems in understanding communication technology.

New Media and society is an integrated work centering on the social aspects of new media. It introduces the history and uses of the new technologies and examines basic issues posed by interactive media in areas that affect intellectual, organization, and social life. It is designed to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to the study of this rapidly changing field.
