MASS MEDIA AND ITS INFLUENCE ON SOCIETY WORKSHOP
In the past five decades, the media and its influential effect on the masses have increased exponentially. Initially, the news and media channels were limited to the telegraph, but technological inventions then found many channels to spread the news to the masses such as the radio, newspapers, magazines, television, websites, and now mobile applications as well. Given this reality, the media has a huge impact on society in shaping the public opinion of the masses, which can form or modify the public opinion in different ways depending on what is the objective.
