Which of the five types of convergence media do you understand least – and how does it affect you?
By: Marina Eggen
I understand interactive the least. All the other convergence medias are talking about one company using others, buying others, or having multiple divisions and devices with more then one use. They all have to do with multiple companies or applications. Then there is interactive convergence media, which just talks about the individual. I don’t understand how it is convergence media. Is it the fact that the individual can use many different kinds of media to relay a message? Interactive media affects me because this type of convergence media has to do with the person, the individual. I am the one using the interactive convergence media. I don’t use corporate, operational, or multi-platform. They affect me in a round about way but I don’t have that much personal interaction with these convergence medias. With interactive, I’m supposed to be using interactive in my daily life (if I’m understanding this correctly).
