Ommunications. Technology: The New Media, and new forms of communications.

In this assignment we ask that you locate scholarly research related to the phenomenon which regards to the use of New Media, and how it is so much easier for people to use to forms of communications such as text messaging, and messaging, and emailing, and using chat to talk, and communicate with each other, but they are forgetting how to communicate in real life. I am trying to write a paper in regards to something relating to the new forms of communications, and the effects and side effects of it, and how it affects real life communication as in to face to face communications. Or how it makes it easier for people and teens to communicate as in not being shy on chat instead of face to face.

Your objective is to write a short literature review summarizing what the research tells us is already known about the topic.

You should have at least three items in your literature review and they should come from academic sources. There is a resource guide on the library web site (cmns253) and we encourage you to make use of it.

Write up a short essay based on your literature review. Include an opening paragraph that explains the technologies you chose and why you chose them (presumably they are the ones from your second assignment). End with a concluding paragraph in which you speculate on what further research you would do on the topic and how you would do it. Your essay should be 750 to 1000 words long, posted to your blog, in APA format and linked to (again, as with Assignment Two) on your page for assignments on this wiki. Include the word count at the end of the essay.

The paper topic has to be on
