• Using at least three of the seven key concepts from Chapter 1 of Baym, how would you describe and explain the media you use most often? For example, how interactive are your favorite sources? What is their temporal structure

  • Compare your media use to the findings reported by Botterill, Bredin, and Dun for Millennials media usage. How is your use of traditional and new media similar or different? What do you think are the factors that make it similar or different?

  • In your response to classmates, explain how your experiences were similar or different.  What factors contributed to your similarities or differences?

Seven concepts that can be used to productively compare different media to one another as well as to face-to-face communication are interactivity, temporal structure, social cues, storage, replicability, reach, and mobility.
