Write a discussion on the readings assigned for the week (I will attach the file). For the last paragraph focus on the changing dynamics of the digital age. What are the changing behaviors in society due to changing technologies? How do you feel about these changes? How is computer-mediated communication different?

his week’s topic is Changing Technologies, Cultures, and Societies in an Age of Digital Media.
This is a great topic, specifically because of the very extraordinary and challenging times we have all faced over the last two years due to COVID-19. We have all experienced this new era, which has drastically changed our daily activities. This includes the way we communicate as well as the way we have been using digital media, such as the news, social media, video conferencing, and talking more frequently as opposed to messaging. This period, for many, has been difficult on so many different levels, and yet for some, it has been a great time of reflection and reconnection period with family and friends. Who knows exactly how long this new norm will last but what we do know is that it has forced us to re-examine the way in which we communicate, shop, and conduct business, to name a few.
I look forward to reading about how the changing behaviors in our society as well as how they relate to changing technologies. I am also looking forward to reading about how you plan on incorporating current trends and events that have recently set the new tone.
