Massmedia
 
Types: In modern society we are in daily contact with different types of  mass media. We recieve most of our information through television, newspaper, radio or the Internet. These are the media that reach a very large audience, that is way they are called mass media.
Functions: They serve first of all, as sources of information. They allow us to follow the world affaires soon after the events happen. In the case of live  broadcasting, we learn about current events as they happen. Most people follow the national and world news regularly to be well-informed. In the case of cathastrophes, such as earthquakes or terrorist attacks, the whole world follows the mass media to get the latest information. Many channels broadcast breaking news in such situations.
  Mass media do not only inform, but they also educate. Documentary programmes  take us to places we would never have a chance to see and provide us with information that we would othewise  not know about.
  Apart from  the informative and educative function, the role of mass media is to entertain. Thousands  of people sit in front of their TV sets at the same time  and watch a World Cup final match in football or hockey. People like to relax watching films, sitcoms, soap operas or series;  some prefer to discussions or reality shows. For many people the TV or the Internet are the only ways of entertaining themselves. The sick, the unemployed, the disabled or lonely people normally watch it much more then people who have families or who are busy. On the other hand, there are people who prefer to read, meet others  or go out instead of watching TV.
