Think back to 2000. Technology was becoming a driving force in society. Chunky computers, floppy disks and Walkmans were the rage. These new inventions intimidated a generation that had never experienced such advancements.

In 2004, Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg and fellow Harvard classmates. Since its creation, Facebook has become one of the largest social media platforms in the world with over 1 billion monthly active users at the beginning of 2014.

Two years later…

Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Noah Glass created Twitter. In 2007, about 60,000 tweets were sent out per day. As of January 1, 2014, an average of 58 million tweets were sent out per day. That’s about 9,100 tweets per second.

Digital media is exploding. More and more companies and individuals are using social media like Facebook and Twitter to market or advertise. Digital media changed the way we communicate, do business and live.

This is exactly why we’ve created a St. Bonaventure University Digital Media Club.

Students need an outlet to discuss and discover new ways that social and digital media is being used. With the Digital Media Club, St. Bonaventure students can be a part of the advancement of the digital and social worlds. Through blogging, digital marketing and strategic social media communication, this organization will inform and educate people of the ways that digital media can be beneficial, practical and enjoyable.

    • According to oxforddictionary.com “In practice, in the sense ‘television, radio, the press, and the Internet, collectively,’ media behaves as a collective noun (like staff or clergy, for example), which means that it is now acceptable in standard English for it to take either a singular or a plural verb.”

      So, in this instance, media is acting as a collective noun for all forms of digital media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blogging).

      Thanks for the comment.
