2 Chapter 10: Discussion Legacy media and new media are two types of media that differ in a variety of ways, including the procedures by which they are developed and disseminated, the rates at which they may be provided and updated, their viewers, and the effects they have (Surette, 2014). Legacy media is typically developed and distributed by large institutions such as newspapers, television networks, and radio stations. Legacy media content is usually subject to tight rules and restrictions. Legacy media is also generally slower than newer forms of media in terms of updating its content, and its geographic reach is limited due to the broadcasting range and physical distribution of legacy media. Over the other hand, new media is created and spread on the internet by individuals or small groups of people with little or no regulation or constraints on the content. In contrast, traditional media is produced and disseminated by major corporations. New media may be updated quickly and reach a far bigger audience, often on a global basis. The term "new media" refers to a variety of platforms, one of which being social media, which has been found to have a variety of ramifications for crime and victimization. Because of the spread of social media platforms, criminals have an easier time participating in illicit activities such as cyberbullying, identity theft, and other forms of cybercrime. Furthermore, misinformation and fake news can be easily transmitted via social media platforms, potentially contributing to an increase in illicit activities (PBS Newshour, 2015). On the other hand, social media can be used to enhance victimization awareness, such as through campaigns against domestic abuse or sexual assault. This can be performed through the use of campaigns to disseminate knowledge about these issues. Furthermore, it can be used to aid victims in connecting with resources and support services.
