OverviewInmy daily life, I spend most of my time at home to watching Hong Kong drama,Korean drama and some variety shows. But when I list out the media that Iinteract with during one weekday and one weekend media log, I found that I hadbeen exposed to so many media in a single day. I have used a lot of socialmedia such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube and etc.
Socialmedia is created to connect us to the world. Social media seems to have beenable to cover all of our life functions, such as chatting with friends, makingphone calls, taking photos and interacting with people around us. 2. WeekendAbovemy media log shows that I will watch more than eight type of media in a day. Thefirst thing I do when I wake up in the morning, I will take out my smart phoneand start watching my Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and WeChat to see if anyoneis looking for me, or I’ll be listening to music. After that I would spend thewhole day stay at home watching TV dramas and movies.
As long as I don’thanging out with my family or friends, I will take the time to watching a greatmovies such as Dangal, A Silent Voice, XXX and Wonder Women. 3.WeekdayIusually watch TV and listen to the radio on weekdays.
The reason why I likewatching TV so much is because everything on TV is completely different fromreality. For example, products that are displayed in advertisements are oftenslightly different than what they actually buy in real life. The plots in theTV series are more romantic than the real ones, without the worry of money andthe pressure of life. And most of the end of the TV dramas is good people havethe best, bad people have evil. However, in reality the good people do notalways have a good ending, and the evil people do not necessarily get theretribution. So, watching TV can be imagined by yourself, that’s why I likewatching TV and movies so much now. For listening to the radio, some programson the radio will give me a lot of imagination.
But I am listening to the radiofrequency is not much, only when I driving will open the radio listening to themusic. Occasionally listen to entertainment news, sports news, traffic, weatherforecast, funny programs and true story. So, listening to the radio is one ofthe habits I need to get on the car. 4.
ChallengeIchallenge the experience of the media for a day, and the deepest feeling I haveis that the world is quiet. You will find that without the media, it will bevery depressing, but the advantage is that you can spend more time reading abook, you can use the time more valuable, and the interpersonal relationshipbecomes easier. But for many people, there is no media, no smart phone and noInternet life is unimaginable. Indeed, the Internet has become a part ofeveryday life, such as shopping, chatting, checking information, bookingflights, playing games and working online. Modern people are becoming more andmore dependent on the Internet. Once the phone is not around, or if thecomputer can’t connect to the Internet, they will be restless and even unableto work. In this advanced age, the media is so important to everyone, it is agood tool for conveying information.
Which media can I not use?I’vebeen using my laptop for most of the last few days, and if I had to choose amedium that I could not use, I would choose television. I am a person who likeswatching TV very much, I can sit in front of the TV for three hours in minutes.But why would I choose television? Just because today in the age of advances ininformation technology, the internet has brought us great convenience. Whetherit’s watching the news, sport competition, TV drama and etc.
We still can use alaptop or smart phone Internet search everything that you want, can immediatelyto watch the replay of the drama also. 5. ConclusionInfact, I see that mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets will replace TVand radio. Not only me, most of the young people also use their smartphone todownload the social media application they want, and they will download movies,TV shows, and entertainment programs using internet on their laptop. The waypeople get information is more diverse, through newspapers, radio, and theInternet, and the form of information is more than just words and multimediaforms such as pictures and video.
In conclusion, the existence of social media in today’ssocial media has indeed added a lot of content to people’s life, and indeed ithas changed a lot of life rhythm and life state.
