This week (5) of BCM112 discusses the affect that technological convergence has on the role of media users.
And what does that mean? Well in my video, I use the example of YouTube and the history of TV to reflect on how the process of technological convergence; which is the act of different media(s) merging together to create new media, affects the role of the people that use media. So pretty much everyone.
Since it was time for me to try my hand at making a YouTube video for this subject, it seemed just to create a video about the massive video sharing platform itself.
Since the affect that YouTube has had, as a result of its technological convergence, on its users; has been the creation of the active prosumer over the death of the passive consumer.
