In alternative routes, we're dashing ahead right into a new social global. New media have helped to free up many of us from restrictive, place-defined roles, however the ensuing heightened expectancies have additionally ended in new social tensions and frustrations. as soon as taken-for-granted behaviors are actually topic to consistent debate and negotiation.

The publication richly explicates the quadruple pun in its identify: alterations in media remodel how we feel details and the way we make feel of our actual and social areas on this planet.
