Walla Walla discussed how media affects political involvement. We thought that new media makes it easier for an author to put information out and it is easier for more people to see it. Audiences are more inclined to take action because they have all the information at their finger tips. We also found that this influences how authors, or politicians, display their information. They will now use the media, like Twitter or Facebook, to reach more viwers because most Americans use these new forms of media. They can also get immediate feed back and opinions from viewers. Overall we thought that the author and the audience benefit from social media because the information gets out fast and to many people.
