Mass communication is all around us. But, the context in which we interact with mass media directly impacts the message. Context in communication is the circumstances surrounding the communication or in other words the setting of the communication that is taking place.  Contexts can be physically based, for example your place of employment or with friends at a coffee shop. For example, the way your business might use social media is different than the way you and your friends use social media at the coffee shop.   Contexts can also be temporal or based in time.  For example, advertisements that are considered appropriate now, would not be allowed back in the 1960’s. Context can also be culturally based meaning appropriate communication in one culture is not always the same as another.  

Just as there are different kinds of context, there are also many different mediums of communication that can be used within each context.  Mediums are methods of delivering communication.  Mass Media are the many different mediums for delivering Mass Communication.  For this assignment you will be choosing a specific context and then telling us about how Mass Media is used in that context.

You will choose either a personal context or a professional context and look at how mass media is used in that context now as well as consider how it will be in used in the future.
