Living in the 20th century is not hard for most of us compared to people who live far behind as we get more privileges. As we move towards the future, the government has to be innovative in providing better facilities and technologies as they require better productivity. Apart from a cleaner and healthier environment, productivity is also depending on how much stress and pressure we take from work. The lesser stress and pressure we take from people, the better productivity we have to give back to our company. One of the privileges we currently have living in the future is advanced technologies. Technologies have many kinds including leaving our washing machine at home and being able to control it from someplace far, using our smartphone as the remote control. The future vision, especially in movies gives us a bit more expectations compared to what we have currently, especially with flying cars, and bullet trains. But it is also understandable why until this point we could still not achieve that as we have more important issues to focus on right now especially on Coronavirus that contagiously affecting people around the world.
The media is known for ages, and there are many types of media as well. I am sure you thought that the earliest media that existed in the traditional media was the television, newspapers, and radio. But unfortunately, you are wrong. Let start off with why media exist. Previously, during ancient times, media is used for communications. You see, back in those days, there were not any newspapers, televisions, or radio to communicate, people would do smoke burning, sending birds with short messages, writing on the walls and etc. Later on, it got to advance that people actually started writing, on newspapers and flyers especially during World War I and World War II. Even so, until then, communication through media was still a one-way communication where only the sender was allowed to speak in writings because there was no way the receiver could react or giving feedbacks to it unless they write back or communicate face-to-face.
But these days, our technologies have changed how the media works. Nowadays, our media is known as digital media. Digital media allows two-way-communications, where we could also voice out our own opinion to our senders. This is very useful in forums and community online groups where they would have discussions based on the topics they would agree on. For example, most of these groups are based on books, gaming, and current political issues. Not only that, but online streaming also became available where people do not have to listen to songs through the radio or CD player. For example, when you purchased iTunes, Spotify, or Joox, you can easily get any songs from your favorite artists on these platforms and it is easy as well because you get to walk around as it plays on your mobile phone with the presence of the Internet, of course.
Apart from that, because of our advanced technologies, it brought media to a whole new level as well. For example, the existence of social media became available to everyone. We all love low-cost spending, especially advertising. Advertising in traditional media used to be in magazines, newspapers, and flyers, not even on websites. Websites even during the 90s, does not have so many pictures or elements of design because it was mainly to distribute information. But now, digital advertising is so cheap, website development requires website design skills, and it is important for the graphics in any platform to be pretty in order to get viewers and traffics. At the same time, opportunities for website developers became more. That is why now, you can see there are top 10 web design companies Malaysia, because these companies can see the opportunities that they can grab as many businesses would like their web design to be as original and aesthetics. Aside from that as well, social media helps businesses and people to communicate better with their customers, friends, and families. That is why businesses would also hire someone specifically in that department from social media awards Malaysia or Malaysia social media awards to manage their social media including Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Nonetheless, it is true that media has its own bad outcomes just as other inventions and creations, but I believe if we use it in a proper way with proper tools and good intentions, we are able to have a greater outcome from it. As the media has the biggest influence on people just like our words and mindset on ourselves, if we know the right way, we could set the right tone.
