Christina Robinson Intro to Mass Comm 8/24/2016 Ch 1 – Part A 1. Read Proverbs 18:15 and relate it to this chapter This verse relates to this chapter because as humans, we want knowledge and through  technology, different kinds of knowledge is accessible with just a click of a button 2. Name and give an example of three types of “noise” that may occur in the  communication process. Semantic noise – when a person asks a New Yorker for “soda” expecting for it to be something  with ice cream in it. Certain terms have different meaning in different areas.  Mechanical noise – a pen running out of ink. Environmental noise – when a person is trying to have a conversation with another person but  there is noise inside of the restaurant.  3. What is the difference between the following types of communication: (1) interpersonal;  (2) machine­assisted interpersonal; (3) mass communication Interpersonal communication is when a person or group of people communicate with each other  without the use of a mechanical device. Machine­assisted interpersonal communication is when  a person or group of people use devices with one or more receivers to communicate. Mass  communication is when complex organizations use machines to produce and transmit public  messages to a large audience.  4. Describe how mass media is changing in each of the following: (1) technology, (2)  economics, (3) social trends The internet has allowed mass media to be easily accessed in just a click of a button. Different  forms of technology that has allowed for mass media to be on difference devices such as  smartphones and tablets. 5. What are the five features that define mass media organizations? It is produced by complex and formal organizations; has multiple gatekeepers; needs a  numerous amount of money to operate; exists to make a profit; and is highly competitive. 6. How can the Internet be both mass communication and interpersonal communication? The Internet can be both mass communication and interpersonal communication by forms of  many different social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and instant messaging.  Traditional mass media such as movies, newspapers, and books will eventually be on the  Internet making is a form of communication. This has caused the Internet to be both mass and  machine­assisted communication at the same time.
