The development of media has provided us various ways of communication in our modern society: Movies, books, newspaper and social platforms and a lot more. However, the concept of social networks remains in my head and revealed to be the reason WHY I HEART MEDIA. It Is not only about constantly creating media but also to communicate in a direct way since nearly everybody owns a smartphone nowadays. Especially, the idea Facebook has designed after the Las Vegas shooting this Sunday – Safety check and Crisis Response. These settings provide users to request and give needed help to others after a disaster occurred. Furthermore, you can check whether your loved ones remain safe.

That way digital media is used to connect people in need and support can be provided in a faster and direct way. Regarding the political development and changes, a seemingly increasing number of attacks and explosions have happened worldwide, which makes this setting very useful.

In this context Long talk short: I love my friends and family, which is WHY I HEART MEDIA.
