The mass media have a very direct influence on the public opinion of society, always eager to be satisfied with new experiences. It can isolate us from our daily problems, making us not overthink about those situations that usually worry us and make us be excessively routine people in our behaviors.
How the media influences public opinion?
The mass media have made society evolve gradually, demanding information, and making us communicate. Previously, in past times, it was the radio that accompanied people in their daily chores. Later, television appeared with its programming for all audiences. The world of the image was prevailing in every one of us.
The world of celluloid too, and although it was much older than that of radio, clearly impacted people. The use of the image, instead of the dialogue, connected well with the public. Subsequently, private television appeared, in competition with the public, always at the service of the established power, with its wars of audiences that in some way have clouded the good work of that freedom that the human being should show off. At this time, the media war and the use of the internet constantly capture the Spanish’s attention.
The message of the mass media is a matter carefully detailed. The detail is the purpose of these means of communication. That purpose is primarily aimed at the sales market. To always produce a change of attitude in people, promote a product, and sell it, alienating human beings in both good and bad.
The impact to be taken into account by professionals is the message that is created in young people. From her earliest childhood. The theme of fashions, cartoons, drawings that cause significant impacts on them, being quite dangerous and harmful products for the health of children. We protest that we buy children warlike toys, but what about the video consoles that contain products that are truly dangerous and aggressive for them.
For the adolescent
The aggressiveness implicit in certain types of movies and telefilms is enormously destructive to his psychology. The world of consumerism, the lack of ethics especially with the type of message that is brought to the small screen, creates behaviors of real rebellion in this adolescent opinion, not favoring weaker psychologies than normal and based on the many unreasonable of their behaviors. There is absolutely nothing being done about it.
People are not prepared for certain things, because of their way of being and others, older people, people who worry about things, and people with psychological problems. It is also not recommended to use television indiscriminately since they do not have that critical spirit. They are sufficiently trained to discern whether this type of programming is the most suitable for your life. This is also an important point to keep in mind for them.
Point to subject
The subject of the message in the audiovisual world should be taken a little more care since on a psychological level, we can create without realizing it a problem underlying a social reality that is least needed in this type of communication. Not even in this way so disloyal to human nature itself. It is important to become aware of all this to avoid behavior that is somewhat blurred and difficult to understand in the future by people around you and even by your own family. We must also be aware of the impact and influence that the media can have on our lives.
That is the fight that the professionals of psychology have in question and that sometimes we are listened to but not in a direct way, if not accidentally, and for some type of event that triggers an added problem.
These are in fashion right now, and their format is practically the same. The yellow press, the way of breaking the news, the sale of exclusives, the lack of sincerity of people who dedicate themselves a little to that world, professional ethics, the depersonalization of events, the reaction of the famous … all of this produces the curiosity to see and analyze it carefully. The detail is important to take it into account clearly and directly.
The spaces dedicated to the continuous catastrophe, soaking up others’ problems, is worth considering. Another important aspect of being determined is, without a doubt, violence in football stadiums, the war of absurd nationalisms, the lack of an image of some athletes, not giving an example when they should, being moderate in statements,
What do you tell me about the newscasts, loaded with information that should be exposed or presented to adults, and yet it is classified as information for all audiences. That is important to analyze calmly.
The mass media could be used for more appropriate purposes and not use public opinion to create a false reality that does not represent the majority of the citizens of a country that lives in freedom.
Depending on the child’s evolutionary age, we can promote that much-needed quality of life that is needed to adapt each person to each form of demand, create freedom, and a power of choice that is quite important to know how to choose what is needed.
