Just as the ‘Industrial Revolution’ brought about the ‘Industrial Age’, today, we are living in the ‘Age of Information’, all thanks to the ‘Digital Revolution’. Information, today, is everywhere and in the hands of everyone, all thanks to the advances in mass communication mediums used for the transmission of the information. Whether it is Entertainment, News, or Advertising, Mass Communication professionals of today have many more options available to take their message to the masses than they did even a quarter of a century ago.
