week 3

I DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED WITH MY BLOG FROM THE 3RD WEEK THAT ITS NOT ON THE WEB SO I WILL UPLOADED AGAIN…

In this reading I was very impressed about media influences. They are many aspects that we know about their existance, but we have never pause to think how can these afect us. For example when I read about how media control us, and that many media schedules (such as T.V.and Radio) make their itinerarys in base to us. But also we make our day schedule based on our favourite programs.

Sometimes its very sad to think that our day is based on this, for example getting uo early so we can watck the news, or don’t make appointments in our favourite T.V show hour, or even stop seeing some friends because we have something very “important” to do. Something very simple but a very good example, its when I think when a parent punishes his or her children… whats the first thing most of the parents restrict? T.V.

Hartley and Scannell talk about similiar concepts, but they have the same main idea. How is media affecting our everyday life. And it’s a very strong concept, because now media has become very influencial in our daily life. I love media but also Im a little scared of what consequences this can bring in a not far away future.

We can see some consequences this days, but also some beneffits. If you have time you can see this videos…

As a Psychologist student I want to said that this is affecting all type of social bonds. Now this links between people are tearing appart, so its very important not to only see the beneffits of media, but also the consequences. Since what ime has media being controlling our time? Does media really control our routine? These are questions that only you can answer. So just think about them for a moment.
