Members of Society: The Mass Audience.

A mass audience is not to be thought of as a mob or as an unthinking mass of individuals vulnerable to the intentional or unintentional manipulations of media practitioners. Rather, it is a convenient shorthand term for the great number of people who consume mass entertainments and information. The ongoing growth of new media has changed traditional notions of audiences and today audience members are themselves often media producers which brings me to the point of this blog. I am a part of this mass audience community, and after i started using scoop.it did i start to become a media producer. This ‘news stand’ is not just for a grade in class, but it has been able to make reading the news online easier and it is continuously updated with information that i am interested in. It is like, tumblr, stumble upon or even pinterest but about news around the world that affects our own personal world drastic ways. As for being a media producer, the combination of articles that i put together may someday be exactly the collaboration of  information that somebody else is looking for. I strive to look for information that relates to my field of study and that of the country i was brought up in.
