A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of Media and Networking for ASL.
Before looking at these two terms together, let us see what they individually stand for. Google defines the term media to be “the main means of mass communication (broadcasting, publishing, and the internet) regarded collectively.”
On the other hand, the definition of the word ‘networking’ is “the action or process of interacting with others to exchange information and develop professional or social contacts.”
From these two meanings, it can be gathered that media and networking go hand in hand. This should not be confused with the term ‘network media’, which refers to “the communication channels used to interconnect nodes on a computer network”!
Media and networking have now become intrinsically connected. Media is now present in social networking websites such as Whatsapp, Instagram, and Twitter. These networking sites have, in fact, become an important source of news, and by extension, media.
