.:New Media Interests:.
New media allows real time news and situations to blur the lines between what is online and what is "IRL". New media has put us in "The future" in regards to how people in the first world relate to one another. From Facebook to Twitter to FourSquare, people are no longer either online or outside. Mobile phones and WiFi hotspots have allowed people to take interests and everyday happenings out of their lives and put them online for others to see, judge, comment on, and even participate in! In my mind this is both a wonderful as well as terrifying aspect of new media and personally the most interesting.
