- Annotation The internet has fundamentally transformed society in the past twenty-five years, yet existing theories of communication have not kept pace with the digital world. This book focuses on everyday effects of the internet--including information-seeking, big data, and the growing importance of smartphone use--to explain how the internet surpasses traditional media. Synthesizing global perspectives, Ralph Schroeder posits a theory on the internet's role, and how both technological and social forces shape its significance.
