This book looked at what the media industries, organizations, people, and nations envisioned by the year 2025. Over the years there have been remarkable developments in print, electronic and social media. There has also occurred an incredible revolution of media technologies, and social media.
The verdict about what the contributing authors did in their media predictions isn’t fully in. But there have been some surprises in the industries of books, newspapers, magazines, radio, television, smart phones, and social media. National and political coverage of events have witnessed the rise of fake news, and women and minorities making progress especially in the broadcasting industry. Developing nations have benefited from the revolution in social media, and are now considered part of the Global Village.
Mass media’s coverage has intensified with its diversity, a 24-hour news cycle, and publications on-demand. Audiences have been sold slick advertising, and public relations are flourishing. Such developments have occurred in such cases because of bigger budgets, more efficient organizations, and mergers. Corporate America has ushered in the rise of digital newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and video conferences.
