The reason why I heart Media is especially the possibility to communicate and connect with other people for instance over distance and international borders. What would we do if there were no networks, webs and apps? I am convinced that it is part of all our lives and we wouldn’t want to miss it. It already starts in the morning, when looking at the mobile phone is part of waking up. Also during the day we always share and report what we are doing and were we are. I think it’s amazing to be able to let important people take part of what I’m doing no matter if they are far away or not. The fact that media has no barriers and people from all over the world can be and stay in contact encourages social contacts and relationships. For me, the luxury to catch anybody wherever and whenever I want and stay informed on the newest happenings is the main reason why I heart media. Jula Ammon
