Nowadays, with the fast pace of technological development, there are more and more means to circulate information. Traditionally, information is communicated through books but now people also deliver pieces of information via films and televisions. Although all the aforementioned media have their own advantages and disadvantages, television is considered the most effective in my opinion.
Books are the oldest means of communication among the tree. They are easy to carry around so people are able to read them wherever they are. For example, in many countries, especially western ones, it is quite common to see people reading books on buses or trains to kill their time. However, a book may contain too detailed information and be regarded as too lengthy for people with limited time.
Alternatively, films can be adapted from books and effectively shorten the time required to grasp the whole idea. Movies can even be more impressive than books as they present information in a vivid form. Apart from that, this type of media still has its shortcomings in terms of affordability and timeliness. Watching movies is still a luxury to many families, and the information in movies may not be the latest.
In contrast, television has overcome the aforesaid disadvantages. It provides 24-hour coverage of news globally and it has become very common for each family to have a TV at home. Besides, television offers various channels and programs, which caters the need of various individuals. However, due to the size of TV, it is not handy to have it around all the time compared to books. People also have to bear the frequency of commercial advertisements on TV from time to time.
Overall, books, films and television are all widely used for sharing information. By comparing their advantages and disadvantages, I personally consider television as the most effective due to its timeliness and full average of news.
Among the six choices of media for communicating information, I choose television, books and radios as the three that I will be discussing about. I will be including the advantages, disadvantaged as well as which I consider to be the most effective in my paragraphs below.
Firstly, I will be discussing about television. The advantage of television is it is a media that is suitable for all age groups. For instance, children like to watch cartoons, teenagers like to watch dramas, middle-aged people and aged people like to watch variety shows like cooking, fashion designing and singing competitions as well as the news. The disadvantage is it may result in some children and teenagers picking up bad habits or interpret wrong ideas from the shows and follow them.
Secondly, books. The advantage of using books as a media to communicate information is it that benefits those who like to read. However, this can be a disadvantage too, as not all the people enjoys reading. Lastly, it is radio. The advantage is most working class people likes to listen to radio when they are on their way to work, and through radio, audiences also get to know about what is happening around the world without watching the news. However, the disadvantage is most children and teenagers prefer to listen to their favourite idols music rather than listening to radio. Therefore, the audience group for books and radio will be much smaller when compared to television.
In conclusion, I find that television is the most effective media for communication information, as it had a larger group of audience. It also brings joy to the audience at the same time when communicating information, and this may help audiences to remember the information given better.
