All About Mass media
The mass media are diversified media technologies that are intended to reach a large audience by mass communication
The technologies through which this communication takes place varies
Broadcast media such as radio, recorded music, film and television transmit their information electronically
Print media use a physical object such as a newspaper, book, pamphlet or comics, to distribute their information
Outdoor media is a form of mass media that comprises billboards, signs or placards placed inside and outside of commercial buildings, sports stadiums, shops and buses
Other outdoor media include flying billboards (signs in tow of airplanes), blimps, and skywriting
Public speaking and event organising can also be considered as forms of mass media
The digital media comprises both Internet and mobile mass communication
Internet media provides many mass media services, such as email, websites, blogs, and internet based radio and television
Many other mass media outlets have a presence on the web, by such things as having TV ads that link to a website, or distributing a QR Code in print or outdoor media to direct a mobile user to a website
In this way, they can utilise the easy accessibility that the Internet has, and the outreach that Internet affords, as information can easily be broadcast to many different regions of the world simultaneously and cost-efficiently.
The organizations that control these technologies, such as television stations or publishing companies, are also known as the mass media.
