There has been several different interpretations on the premise of McLuhan’s words, and the meaning behind them.

In order to test the theory and express my findings I have chosen an aspect of media to focus the theory on....   [tags: media, content]

- Internet as a medium has been a thoroughly discussed topic, especially in recent years with the rise of the World Wide Web.

Message And Medium Is Not The Message

- Indeed, relaying content through abbreviations can often portray undesirable or unintended messages. A similar effect can be seen when using language typical to one medium while using different medium, such as text-speak in emails.

Umberto Eco argues ‘the medium is not the message; the message becomes what the receiver makes of it, applying to it his own codes of reception’, but if those codes have already been defined for him by social conventions surrounding that medium, then the message is predetermin...   [tags: English language, Lingua franca, Mass media]
