Question and answer
Q: how has media convergence changed American culture
A: Over the last several decades, numerous new media (ranging from the camcorder and the VCR to the internet, the web, and the computer game console) have been introduced. [ [ These new media profoundly alter how we communicate with each other, how we relate to our core institutions, and how we think of our world. These new media enable us to participate more actively in democratic decision making,
to exert greater control over our entertainment options, to share our own creative work with others. These new media also expand the marketing power of major corporations, expose us to noxious ideas and offensive images, and threaten our privacy. These media have an uneven impact across the culture: some groups still lack access to the online world; different generations understand these emerging media differently. The current media revolution is roughly equivalent in its impact to two other moments in human history -- the introduction of the printing press in the 15th century and the introduction of mass media in the late 19th and early 20th century. Such moments of technological transformation provoked profound debates about shared values and institutional reforms. We need a national conversation about the current moment of media transition because the outcome is still subject to change. All segments of society must be heard as we set future directions for technological and cultural change. ] ]

User: how has the internet changed the way americans consume information

Weegy: The Internet is an important tool in everyday life. [ It puts information at our fingertips not letting our curiosity get the better of us.We no longer need physical desk references to find out definitions of words, similar words or facts.The internet has enhanced our means of communicating long distances in short periods of time, whereby the USPS is almost non existent.The internet has also enhanced security and safety measures with our homes, military installations and all transportation's systems. The internet is a way of life! ]
