Emerging media is ever changing. There is no exact direction in which it will take, but it is important to understand how emerging media effect our every day lives. From social media and blogs to streaming TV shows and smart appliances. All of these different types of media have an impact on us in one way or another.
While we may not be sure where emerging media will head next, we can be certain that it will be something that will greatly impact the marketing and communications fields. Social media and blogs have created an extraordinarily easy way for companies and organizations to communicate to the masses that had never been seen before. While these new media are taking over our lives, we still value the traditional. Paper books and radio are still huge components in the world we live in.
By remembering and honoring past emerging media, we can evolve and create new and exciting media. So what is next in the world of emerging media? We won’t know until it comes about. We have to remember that in the past, television was an emerging media. Being able to reach thousands if not millions of people with a simple switch or button was what used to be new.
