Mike Wesch Poll


My Poll question was: You think Media has changed society in a positive or negative way?

Only four blogger commented on my poll and three agreed that media has changed society in both, positive and negative way.

“For one the media has advanced ways for people to gain knowledge. We can watch documentaries and search up just about anything today through the media, hence  technology”.

“In negative ways, Media causes students to go off the learning. When students use electronics in class, they are more like to use internet for fun…for social network. They actually waste their time on tasks that are not related to school”.

I agree with this person “I would say that the media is more beneficial than harmful but like Mike Wesch said we are on “a razor’s edge” with all this new technology we have. So we have to be aware of  how the  media is used”. Although technology improves every “minute” I think a person is responsible on how they use technology. However, school wise I think it has made us lazier because now everything comes handy we don’t have to go to the library and search for BIG piles of books like back in the days.

  1. For me the media has been affecting me in a bad way. every time I’m in class I like to check my facebook or check on my nba rumors. I guess it does make it easier for us to find information then back in the day when the world was way better.

  2. The media affects me in a bad way. When I have an essay due, I am sure to end up on Facebook. I wish my professors would change from handing in typed work to hand written work. It will make my life much easier. I mean when I have any device next to me, i can’t help but use it to go on Facebook, check my email and CHAT..:D
