How do the internet and other mass media influence the ways in which ways in which people conceive of their identities and the identities of others relative to music ? what kinds of virtual music communities do you belong to (or could you belong to ),and why ? Does today's high-tech world make the potential for building community through music greater or less great than it was in the past ? why, and in what ways ? As I believe in our societies it cannot be separated from social networking media . One of the main things that can become a fact in the recent generation is that communication with people has turned without a change .As i Believe people conceive their identities through many social networking sites like youtube,facebook,orkut and twitter etc which have been invented in the new generation period ,as their were not these type of facilities to promote or advertise music in a great extent . I also believe that if social media wasn't there people across the globe won't know the speciality of which country music is played the most and which is used for different purposes like religion ,fun and education purposes and people could hear easily without moving from one place to another because internet has provided great relief to communicate and become friends and popular. Secondly, i believe in my point of view that there are many kinds of virtual music communities which i believe and i don' believe some . i would say virtual music community would mean that musicians across the globe interact through the social media sites so that they can know which is the taste of music most of the people appreciate it and like it and otherwise what the people are not liking the music in their country. Example i would say in my home country India the songs which are played are not in a great sound and beats whereas in United states there are music played like Electronic Dance music ,classic, pop and alternative where every countries people don't prefer the type of music and musicians have an great alternative that who they can find who like their music and are fans through social media Lastly i would express two music videos below to show the difference - Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Video Song (OFFICIAL) Hrithik Roshan, Sonam Kapoor | Yo Yo Honey Singh TSERIES · 7 MONTHS AGO Maroon 5 - Sugar MAROON5VEVO · A YEAR AGO
