What is electronic media and how it affects our lives?? Electronic media are media that utilize electronics or electromechanical energy for the end user (audience) to access the content. This is in contrast to static media (mainly print media), which are most often created electronically, but don't require electronics to be accessed by the end user in the printed form. The primary electronic media sources familiar to the general public are better known as video recordings, audio recordings, multimedia presentations, slide presentations, CD-ROM and Online Content. Most new media are in the form of digital media. However, electronic media may be in either analog or digital format. Although the term is usually associated with content recorded on a storage medium, recordings are not required for live broadcasting and online networking. Any equipment used in the electronic communication process (e.g. television, radio, telephone, desktop computer, game console, handheld device) may also be considered electronic media. It can change opinions because they have access to people and this gives it a lot of strength. This strength can either be  used constructively by educating the people or it can be used destructively by misleading the innocent people. Power of the media can transform the whole society especially in the developing countries it can be used as a 'weapon  of mass destruction'. But I think the most important use of media is to educate the people about the basic human  rights. The dilemma of the developing countries is that people are not fully aware of their basic rights and if they know, they  don't know about what to do and where to go. They don't know their collective strength. Even they don't know how to  protest and what is the importance of protests. Media should portray the facts. They should not transform the reality. Education and discipline is the key to progress. This is the difference between a nation and a crowd. Media men have  access to people and they have an audience. Their programs have an impact and people listen to them. That's why they are more responsible for the betterment of the society. They should work to educate the people, to  help the people and to liberate the people and to empower the people Media plays a very important role in the building of a society. Media has changed the societies of world so much that
