Ageing Issues in Different Medias in Bangladesh

Electronic and printed medias role


Media

Media

  • Media is a term that refers to all print, digital, and electronic means of communication.

  • From the time the printing press was created (and even before), technology has influenced how and where information is shared.


Types of media

Types of Media

  • In order of introduction, they are:

  • Print (books, pamphlets, newspapers, magazines, etc.) from the late 15th century

  • Recordings (gramophone records, magnetic tapes, cassettes, cartridges, CDs, DVDs) from the late 19th century


Types of media1

Types of Media

  • Cinema from about 1900

  • Radio from about 1910

  • Television from about 1950

  • Internet from about 1990

  • Mobile phones from about 2000


Print newspaper

Print Newspaper

  • This shift away from newspapers as a source of information has profound effects on societies. When the news is given to a large diverse conglomerate of people, it must (to appeal to them and keep them subscribing) maintain some level of broad-based reporting and balance.


Television and radio

Television and Radio

  • Radio programming obviously preceded television, but both shaped people’s lives in much the same way.

  • In both cases, information (and entertainment) could be enjoyed at home, with a kind of immediacy and community that newspapers could not offer.

Film

  • The film industry took off in the 1930s, when color and sound were first integrated into feature films.

  • Like television, early films were unifying for society: As people gathered in theaters to watch new releases, they would laugh, cry, and be scared together.


New media

New Media

  •  encompasses all interactive forms of information exchange.

  • These include:

  • social networking sites,

  • blogs,

  • podcasts,

  • wikis, and

  • virtual worlds. Clearly,

New Media

  • New media tends to level the playing field in terms of who is constructing it, i.e., creating, publishing, distributing, and accessing information (Lievrouw and Livingston 2006),

  • as well as offering alternative forums to groups unable to gain access to traditional political platforms, such as groups associated with the Arab Spring protests (van de Donk et al. 2004).
