SHIFTING SPHERES – “ The social impact of digital media ”

Much points to the fact that we are living in an age of all-encompassing structural and epochal social change today.

And even if this change fails to materialise, it is possible to observe, at least, that the entire world is expecting this epochal transformation. The ‘new media’ are being held responsible for the change – albeit not exclusively but as one of the most important causes
