Before writing this post, I have spent some time researching and fully understanding this topic. So what is convergence in the field of media? It is basically the interlinking of various media platforms which creates a more beneficial outcome for both- media platforms and the audience. In fact, we, as the users of the media meet with convergence in this field rather often. For instance, newspapers that we read on a daily basis no longer have just the printed version- we can also access it easily through the internet, thus it makes it very convenient for people with busy lifestyles who often simply don’t have time to buy a regular printed newspaper, or for students that need to find information about a certain article quickly. Another example of convergence in media would additionally be the television programme schedule. It is not only printed in many newspapers but is also available for online access. I believe that media convergence is a very useful thing that makes our lives somewhat easier and even more enjoyable you could say. While doing my research on this subject, I found the article that was suggested to us for further reading very thorough, with lots of examples and views upon this topic. Here is the name of it once again for your convenience. You can additionally access it via google scholar.
