Mass Communication

by ,

What is mass communication many world ask. Mass communication is the exchange of information on a large scale to a wide range of people.  Many of us today know social engine tools such as Facebook, Instagram and etc as examples for that but that hasn’t always been the case.  Before social media more people was watching the news and reading newspapers. Nowadays a lot of information is transferred faster via computer and internet. Example: someone can tweet out that a hurricane is going on in Florida and within 10 minutes over millions of people would have been notified.

Mass communication has evolved over the years from newspapers to telegraphs to telephones and now to television and computers. This evolutions has helped many and it will continue to grow and spread information at a faster and more effecient pace. But at the same time it takes to spread real news is as fast as it is to spread fake news as well. Example: a few years ago someone tweeted out the death of Jackie chan. Within 20 mins over 5 million people thought Jackie chan was dead and started sending out condolences posts. It was then Jackie Chan who tweeted back he was alive and well. 

Many people keep in touch using social media and that has helped communication socially.  More friends but that has also lead to more severe things , like social bullying which has caused a lot of suicidal cases over the years. In totality many can make the case for the evolution of mass media to be very helpful while some may point to the latter and say it does more harm. For me, I feel it meets right in the middle. I’m grateful for how everything has changed and I am looking forward to seeing what’s next for us. 

Object Speech – Khan

My Object : Scooby Doo portrait with my face on it

I chose this object because it was given to me on my 8 th birthday and I’ve had it ever since. Scooby Doo was one of my favorite shows during my childhood and I watched it nearly every day. My dads best friend had a daughter who happened to be an artist and she was the one who did this lovely art for me. It’s special because she’s no longer in the states , as she’s pursuing her acting career in India and I haven’t seen her since she gave me this as a gift. If she ever turns out to be a big actor I can say I have some of her early works from before she got big. Also this is framed and is on my dresser in my room. Because she has my face on as shaggy, every time I see it, it reminds me of how far I came from being a 8 year old obsessed with scooby doo. 

Self reflection Ad

by ,

First thing first, I’d like to say I enjoyed and learned many things in this course and if I could I’d take it all over again.  For my presentation I was confident and tried my best to stay away from word fillers, which based off of many peer reviews I’ve read about me proves correct. But I saw there was many things I needed to work on. Appearance. I probably shouldn’t have pulled up In a sweatsuit to do my presentation but now I know. 

Another thing was me going into details. I could’ve provided more details in regards to the points the t mobile ad was making. I used drake as the starting point to show how relatable the ad was but never really went into depth about t mobiles phone plans. After reading the peer reviews I’ve learned more about myself and what I need to work on. Hopefully in the future I can use those tips to exceed in my next presentation.  

Self reflection object speech

Unfortunately due to injury I was unable to present my object in front of my peers, which kind of sucked because I was looking forward to it. I always knew I didn’t feel much pressure in presenting in front of an audience and I wanted to test my ability to do so. In the past I had taken a public speech course and was hoping to replicate the same steps I learned to give a great presentation.

I knew in the past I had issues with eye contact and delivery but hopefully during the next presentation I can try to overcome those flaws. I feel that I’m pretty good at keeping my composure while all the eyes are on me and I will demonstrate that in the future. I know it’s not easy to present in front of all a lot of people and I commend my classmates for doing so as they did a great job.
