What does media mean to me? A personal opinion.

Media is hugely important in today’s world. From social platforms to newspapers and video streaming sites like YouTube. We meet it almost anywhere we go. As a result, media will have a significance to most people. Older people often only come in contact with a few types of media, like news papers. As a Result, they may not place the same type of meaning on media as a lot of younger people may do.

While older people may think of media only as a way to get current and recent news. Younger people may associate the word media with friends and entertainment. Sites and apps like Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter are used for chatting with friends and sharing pictures and videos. TikTok is another application which young people use to share short and funny video clips with friends and the rest of the world.

Older and younger people also watch content in different places. Older people may tend to stick to tv, while younger people tend to not watch tv anymore at all. They rather tend to stick to YouTube, Netflix, HBO and other streaming services.

Media: A tool

Media is a platform that you can use to express your feeling to a huge amount of people in a short amount of time. It is also useful to get what is currently going on in the world. It’s also a tool we can use to entertain yourself or other people. If you take, as an example, YouTube. There is hundreds of millions of people watching it at any one time. And people are still uploading videos faster than people can watch them. One YouTuber, Felix Kjellberg, or more commonly known as PewDiePie, has even amassed more than a 100 million subscribers by himself with some help from friends.

Personally, i enjoy watching his channel, but some of you may not like him at all. And that’s the thing, if you don’t like his content, then you can just watch something different from someone else.

And that is why i enjoy media, because there’s something for everyone. If you don’t like it, you don’t like it. And you can choose something else. All people know what media is. It’s almost hard to put into words what i feel about it. Since i almost never think of it. It’s just something that’s always there, so we take it for granted.

I can communicate with all my friends and i can have something to read or watch or even play when I’m bored. Media means the world to me.
