part 1 is already answered, only part 2 based on part 1 answers
The goal of this exercise is for you to better understand your media consumption habits: what type of content you consume, how much media you consume and across what platforms. You will be asked to log your media consumption for three days based on the following:
The type of media content you consumed, the mode of distribution and how much time was spent specifically on social media (see the sample log).
Whether the mode of distribution was “legacy” or “new” media.Examples of “legacy” or “traditional media”: any local, network or cable programs you watch in ‘real time’ on a TV set (i.e., you’re seeing a show at the scheduled time it was meant to be seen by the company airing it); any radio listening via a receiver in your car or radio in your home; hard copies of newspapers, books or magazines; music on CD, vinyl, albums, tape cassettes, 8-track; movies viewed in a theater or at home on TV. Examples of “new media”: any TV shows or movies you view on a TV set via DVR, or a streaming service; any video or audio content you consume over the Internet or on a hand-held device like your cell phone, iPod or iPad; Internet streaming radio, HD or satellite radio, radio you listen to on a handheld device like your phone. Also categorize the following as new media: digital games played on your computer or played through your TV.
The time of day rounded off to the nearest five-minute increment.
Amount of time spent on particular content on a daily basis rounded off to the nearest five-minute increment.
Use an app to track your phone time based on specific apps: Quality Time (Android) or Moment (iOS). The new iOS will automatically track this for iPhone users. Use this to help assess how much time you are spending on things like social media or with other media apps.
Media use you should log (As described above, submit to Canvas a typed log table. Blank logs are located in Canvas):
Music, radio, TV, movies, magazines, newspapers, books (including textbooks or books for class), Internet use (including news sites, online video games, social networking sites such as Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, e-mail, instant messaging, chat sites, streaming from sites such as Netflix, Hulu or YouTube), and digital/video games. Log cell phone use for listening to or downloading music, viewing or downloading video, reading news, Facebook, Snapchat or any other type of new media consumption described in this paper.
What Not to Log:
Do not log cell phone use for the purpose of texting or phone conversations – this type of use can be too fractured and complicated for time-tracking.
Log Procedures: Use the log provided in Canvas to record your media use. Download as many blank log tables as you need for three days to log all media use as described above. At the end of your three-day logging period, analyzeyour use of media and look for trends in your consumption habits. [There is also an example of a filled-in log sheet in Canvas; take a look!]
Writing the Paper: Organize your analysis paper in four parts. Title the paper My Media Use. Clearly label each section as follows:
New vs. Legacy Media. Describe the amount of time overall you spent using legacy vs. new media daily – summarize here to make a point and do not simply list amounts of time consuming each. What was your average time spent each day with legacy media vs. new media? Did you use more legacy media for certain types of content and new media for other types of content or did you distribute your consumption somewhat equally among old and new media? Can you account for differences in your old vs. new media use based on the type of content you were consuming? For example, you may have discovered that for music, you tended to use more new media because it allowed you to listen to music while multi-tasking (e.g., listening to your iPhone while exercising or walking to class). You also may have found that for your favorite TV programs, you preferred traditional television broadcasts instead of watching these programs online. Were you surprised at how much legacy vs. new media you consume? If you had to create a profile of yourself as a media consumer based on your media technology preferences (i.e., old vs. new), how would you define yourself? You likely will not have the space to address all the questions listed here – address the most relevant to your findings. (Approximately .5 page)
Types of Content. Assess and describe your media consumption behavior based on the content you consumed. What trends can you identify? For example, did you primarily choose media content for its entertainment value, to access news and information or to interact with others in a social networking environment? Are there themes in the type of media content you consume – especially when it comes to social networking? For example, when it comes to TV consumption, do you tend to consume more educational/documentary-style programs or reality TV shows? Do you consume certain types of media content more than others? How much do you interact socially via Facebook, Twitter or some other social media? What do your content choices say about you as a media consumer? (Approximately .75 page)
Media Representation. Analyze what you saw in terms of representation of people of a different race, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, etc. What types of diversity did you see? Did the media you consumed reflect your own personal identity? How do you think this might impact your perception of the world? Which types of diversity show up the least often in mass media? Where did you find more diverse content (e.g., medium or platform)? (Approximately .5 page)
Reaction. What was your overall impression after tracking and analyzing your media use? Were the results different from what you expected? How do you think your media consumption affects your life? How is your media use beneficial to you? How might it be detrimental to you (e.g., do you think you are consuming too much media)? After assessing your media consumption habits, are you happy with the amount and type of media you use or do you plan to change how you consume media in the future? Don’t just give general comments like “My media use is beneficial because it makes me smarter” without elaborating on what you mean by linking it back to specific media content or your habits of consumption you found based on your log. You likely will not have the space to address all the questions listed here – address the most relevant to your findings. (Approximately .5 page)

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
