Digital technologies have fundamentally altered the nature and function of media in our society, reinventing age-old practices of public communication and at times circumventing traditional media and challenging its privileged role as gatekeepers of news and entertainment.

The media landscape has irrevocably altered how people interact with each other, how communities are formed and how opinions are shared.
