Media are usually used to refer to the mass media. The media are constantly evolving. The first way
of communicating between humans most likely was used in prehistoric times, the signs and signals whose
reflection in the material culture are the different manifestations of prehistoric art. The emergence of
writing is taken as a milestone of the beginning of the story. Since then, economic and social changes were
boosting the birth and development of different media, from writing and its mechanization (printing - 15th
century-) linked to audiovisual media associated with the era of electricity (first half of the 20th century)
and the revolution of information technology and telecommunications (scientific-technical revolution or the
third industrial revolution - since the second half of the 20th century)-every one of them essential for the
various stages of the so-called globalization process.
The main purpose of the media is, precisely, to communicate, but according to their type of
ideology can specialize in; inform, educate, transmit, entertain, form opinion, teach, monitor, etc.

Definition of Media

The concept of media is one that is used to refer to all media in which an idea or message can be
transmitted. Today, however, the concept is commonly related with certain media, more specifically with
newspapers, television, radio, internet, graphic publications.

Historically, the media have been something very exclusive and reserved always the upper social
classes who could eat this type of information. For this we must remember that you wouldn't just until the
19th century that would expand the literacy of societies through public education. Thus, it is
understandable to note growth that the media have had in the 20th century and today. This is not only due
to improvements in technology, if not especially to the fact that it is increasing the amount of population
available to receive that information.

The media are, as stated in its name, a stand which are transmitted ideas of different type that may
be news, advertising messages, ideological debates, etc. Always the media are broadcasting a message in
a language or code that must be accessible to the type of audience that is direct, reason why there are
different languages for different audiences.

The media today have a very important role since they are the responsible largely shape the
thinking of your audience, and here the game is very delicate because many media (product interests
political, economic or cultural) can send a message wrong or interested to an audience that is not used to
being critical about the same.

huge reservoirs or water tanks.

closed spaces where people spend or pause. This advertising is placed on: sports

economic field: who owns the media usage can generate a certain type of consciousness on a sort of
product, i.e. it can generate their own demand, since media often play the role of opinion-makers. Seen
from the business sector, then, is a widely positive aspect to enable marketing and ads for the world.
