Communication, Digital Media and Everyday Life (Second Edition) uses stories to explain the journey from "new media in communication" to "digital media is communication" and provide a clear introduction to communication and media theory and practice. For Generations Y and Z, digital media isnow embedded into most aspects of daily life and integrated into contemporary communication as much as speaking, reading and writing. This book encourages readers to understand how they use "new" media to do "old" things and explores how concepts of communication, digital media and everyday lifeintersect with one another. The first section part of the book introduces the building blocks of communication; its basic tools, devices and approaches. The second section part takes these ideas and concepts in the first part and applies them to "new" media: it considers including ideology in film and television;organisational communication; and values in the new digital world; and how identity, privacy, deception and truth have been redefined. The third part section part looks at communication today - including the redefinition of identity, privacy, deception and truth - and explores what it might be liketo live in an increasingly digital world.
