Digital media and society: Implications in a hyperconnected era

Digital media Internet Mass media

The Digital Media and Society report is a main output of The World Economic Forum’s The Shaping the Future implications of Digital Media for Society project.

The report explores our changing relationship with media, entertainment, and information, due to digitization and the implications this has on individuals and society. Digital Media and Society collates research and findings from phase one of the project, which launched at the Forum’s Annual Meeting 2016.

It highlights (i) some key sociological and behavioural evolutions in individuals from increased use of digital media, entertainment and information, (ii) how these evolutions are impacting our private, public, and professional lives, and (iii) suggestions for individuals, and the public and private sectors, on how to foster positive implications of increased digital media use and address potential issues.
