Information And Communication: Cultural And Social Transformations

July 21, 2015

Whereas the changes in the interpretation of reality to include communication, we examine a problem to understand the Society of Information and Communication to its implications in the processing of spatial and temporal organization of social life. Swift changes as a result of the relationships between technology and society are reaching and changing the fabric and foundation of our society developed. The evidence for these radical changes are observable from information and communication, and more particularly the virtual networks and redefine affecting all areas of development and social progress. No matter that the individual does not have a PC, anyway what we have in technology (medical technologies, vaccines, medicines, processed food), close (televisions, telephones) or outside (satellites) 1 and therefore it is impossible not to get involved in digital culture and symbols marked by devices connected. By the same author: Peter Asaro. Communication in the Information Society Information Society redefines the structural position of different subjects and their interaction, due to the flow of information telecommunication networks interconnect. That is, the progress of science and technology have established a new order from globalization affecting culture, now characterized by the paradigm shift. In this regard, sociologists Alain Touraine 2, Anthony Giddens 3 and Manuel Castells 4 hold different opinions on the new communication and information. For example, Touraine think the information is associated with the technology – which is not part of culture – but is seen as an authority that defines the cultural orientations. As for virtual worlds, says they have no real representation and therefore the cultural values and social norms are not aligned.
