Consider the following:
Any introduction of a new technology into a society initiates an endless series of effects, especially for those who have and use the technology compared with those who do not or cannot use the technology.

Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper that addresses how new media technologies affect social and societal issues.

Address the following:

• Assess whether there is a measurable “digital divide” in the availability and use of technology between the haves and the have-nots in society domestically and globally

• Critique new media technologies and the digital divide:

• What is the socioeconomic effect within our society?

• What are the consequences in the global economy?

• Describe the role of the Internet in social alienation.

• Explain why ethically the influence of new media technologies is important for us to understand.

Conclude your paper by answering the following questions:

Based on historical examples, do you foresee these digital divides narrowing or widening

• In the next 5 years?

• In the next 25 years?

• What are the ethical implications of your forecast?
