Transcript of Media Influence

Media Influence Last 50 years the media influence has grown greatly with the advance in technology, first there was the telegraph, then the radio, the newspaper, magazines, television and now the internet.
We live in a society that depends on information and communication to keep moving in the right direction and do our daily activities like work, entertainment, health care, education, personal relationships, traveling and anything else that we have to do.
Most of our decisions, beliefs and values are based on what we know for a fact, our assumptions and our own experience. On our daily lives we rely on the media to get the current news and facts about what is important and what we should be aware of. Mass Media Influence on Society VIOLENCE FALSE ADVERTISING BODY IMAGE Average American is exposed to over 3000 ads a day.
False advertising or deceptive advertising is the use of false or misleading statements in advertising.
We are affected everyday by forms of false advertisement. Magazines, television products, and weight loss supplements are some of the most common forms.
Almost all of the pictures in the ads Americans see are photo shopped, airbrushed, and have unnatural slimming.
Those images often trigger people to achieve biologically unrealistic ideas. People, especially children, are influenced by media—they learn by observing, imitating, and making behaviors their own.
Exposure to media violence may bring a variety of physical and mental health problems for children and adolescents, including aggressive behavior, desensitization to violence, fear, depression, nightmares, and sleep disturbances. SEXUALITY Media affects people's sexual attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.
Sex is portrayed casually and without consequences.
Although sexual content in the media can affect any age group, adolescents may be particularly vulnerable.
Women’s bodies are sexualized in ads in order to grab the viewer’s attention. Women become sexual objects when their bodies and their sexuality are linked to products that are bought and sold.
1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

1 Peter 3:3-4
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. BIBLE QUOTES (BODY IMAGE) Exposure to "perfect" body images is linked to depression, loss of self-esteem and the development of unhealthy eating habits in women and girls.
Media often reinforce the importance of a thin body as a measure of a woman’s worth.
Many women admit that they judge themselves by the beauty industry's standards and feel they are always in need of adjustment. In today's world, it is impossible to avoid media influence. However, by understanding how it works and why it is a problem, we should can win back the control of our perception and have a balanced view of the world and the people in it. Media Influence and Morality http://www.moralityinmedia.org/ Stories about violence, sexual promiscuity, theft, and greed can be easily found in a variety of media outlets including fictional programming, reality shows, rap music, and the Internet. Problem is... Media shapes culture, influences mindsets, and persuade people to adopt a new idea or practice.
These culture, mindsets, new ideas or practice could be morally wrong.
Some people use media for their own gains.
A lof of people do not realize the severity of media influence.
It affects us subconsciously. According to the article "Morals, Media, and the Digital Revolution" by Patricia King, We can do.. Pray for every avenue of media to be used increasingly as a positive influence.

Encourage existing wholesome media. There are many wonderful programs, books, articles, and music that promote good morals. Send letters to stations, websites, and publishers encouraging them for hosting or producing edifying media. Send emails to friends drawing their attention to healthy media.

Support the purchase of wholesome movies, video games, books, etc.

Create some moral media. Almost everyone these days can send emails, create a blog, post a message on Facebook or Twitter, or create a video for You Tube. Media is viral so we can quickly fill the earth with goodness if we all do something.

Fund media projects that represent integrity, wholesome values, and pure morals. Both individuals and society
Priming: Media messages may help us to recall old ideas, knowlege or experience
Agenda setting: Also called the "Gate keeping". Media controls the information we get and therefore what we think about.
Framing: Frames are the particular treatment or spin applied to a message. This often ends up shaping our own opinions of the news.
Agenda Setting = Which
Framig = How
Cultivation: After spending a lot of time watching TV, people start to blur the lines between reality and fiction.
Ads and campain are desinged to change our opinion. HOW does the media affect our view of the world? Solution http://vimeo.com/12783105
