Today was the introduction to what new media and Internet was going to look like. It’s completely different to how it sounds on paper. I wasn’t expecting it to be so art based but I did like that it was very immersive sort of stuff where your there to use this course as a vehicle to ask questions and make accusations on everyday things in your life but based using media and internet of course.
The teacher asked the class what was Internet to them. Some said entertainment and some said advertising. For me, the internet is a very personal thing. I use the World Wide Web to communicate with my friends through social media Chanel’s such as Instagram and Facebook. I am constantly updated with what everyone’s up to. I also look at it creatively as you are allowed to make the perception of yourself over the internet however you want. You can embellish yourself or you can be brutally honest but it’s there for you as a gateway to reach out to others.
