Media at a personal level


Have you taken the time to think about how media has changed? Today, once you close your computer and wrap up your latest Tweet on your Blackberry, just take a minute to give thought to how media is delivered in your life. Are you solely relying on the teleprompter-reading, coifed newscaster and the wise, seasoned newspaper reporter? Or have you noticed how much of your online activity is actually media coming at you via friends, acquaintances and even people you’ve never met, but who you follow in their daily lives through information they are sharing with you?

A recent ‘Six Pixels of Separation’ blog post wonderfully hit upon truths of the personalization of media. Although media used to live primarily in the illusive realm of reporters, editors and scripts, it is now coming to us (generally unedited) by people we know or are at least connected to in the online world. You will even find that the ‘talking heads’ delivering the more traditional media have opened up and invited their viewers into their own lives via Twitter, Facebook and blogging.

Six Pixels points out that this new era of media is “not a question of “all hell breaking loose” when anybody and everybody can publish content, but it is curious to think about how emotional media has become and how personal the people who create it are to us all.”

Media is, in a way, coming down from it’s political, edited, bureaucratic post and meeting us on a personal level. The question remains of what this shift in media is doing to society. What happens when the traditional methods give way to an interconnected, instant online universe?
