Transcript of Media in the Online Age

Media In The Online Age Audience Produced Media It can be argued that we do not all become collectivly involved in make media in the age of Web 2.0. For example the Hitwise Report (2007) says 0.16% of youtubes traffic uploads content, meaning that the wast majority of people are only going there to consume there media, rather than create it.

As of 2009, there are estimated that there are around 18million accounts on second life. The second life also has an economy called Linden Dollars (L$), which can be exchanged for real US$. This has opened up for people to make profits from these virtual realities. There have been several people it is estimated that have made a over $1million in profit.
