Blog #4

I think all of them are extremely relevant and important to our everyday life. However, I think what truly effects us more then we think is media ecology. The first thing I think of when i think of media ecology is Facebook and Google. How between these two major media systems our world has changed the way we as a society go about our daily lives. in the past 10 years we have gone from doing things ourselves to being reliant on technology. not saying that it is a bad thing i am just stating a fact that we our evolving with the times. However there might be more consequences then we think. When we do all are research on Google, we become more ignorant with our library system. When we think we can get our news from Facebook we become less culture and more ignorant. If we message on Facebook instead of going to meet friends we become a more sheltered society. 21st century media ecology is all about how these systems have changed the way we pick restaurants, go to parties, communicate with friends, and live our daily lives. Our world revolves around what we as consumers want and how these companies can make millions if not billions of dollars. We all know that is what they do because that is business. Media ecology is the most important because it is the most relevant to us. We cant change the way these companies run or the way they need to make money, we can change the way the affect us. Overall, media ecology has changed the way we run ourselves. We unconsciously go to google for anything, and stay on Facebook all day to stay connected. These two media outlets have changed the way we think, act, and learn everyday.
