For my research, I am going to discuss what are new media and the impact of new media on our lives. When we say of new media, the first words that pop up of our minds are blogs, wiki, and face book. And yeah, new media are mostly internet related social networking and entertainments. We can say that internet is the new media. According to statistics on internet usage, 72.4% of US population are using internet in a regular basis. Of this 72.4%, it occupies people from different generations. My research is also going to focus on how different generations employ the new media differently.
