New Media

Definition - What does New Media mean?

New media is a catch-all term used for various kinds of electronic communications that are conceivable due to innovation in computer technology. In contrast to “old” media, which includes newspapers, magazines, books, television and other such non-interactive media, new media is comprised of websites, online video/audio streams, email, online social platforms, online communities, online forums, blogs, Internet telephony, Web advertisements, online education and much more.

Techopedia explains New Media

It is not very easy to draw the line between new and old media because the so-called old media has found new ways of representation in digital forms, leaving behind its conventional methods of representation. New media is considered to be the multimedia and digital form of communication happening via desktop and laptop computers, as well as phones, tablets and other devices. New media has introduced user interaction, rather than simply consuming media. New media can be customized to the users’ preferences and it can selectively link from one form of content to another.
