Newspaper, magazine, radio, television and internet are the different types of media. It greatly affects our lives because media has the power to influence our thoughts.

People who read much of these news or view excessive violence on television, trust less and take the world more frightening than it is.
Some advertisements try to influence the people by telling them the importance of branded items. As a result children and youngsters become status conscious and thinks that by using these items they can show their high status in the society. To fulfill their needs or to impress others they many times go violent to get money.

Advertisements help us know the different products in the market and we can easily make our choices according to our needs. Weather forecast programs tell us about the weather so that we can take precautions or plan accordingly.
So, we can say that media greatly affects our lives both negatively and positively. It must give us factual information and fair analysis of a situation, news, etc. Media also works in the way to help, liberate and empower the people.
