Electronic media has many advantages. Perhaps the largest one is the ability to reach out to thousands at one time to deliver crucial information. When children go missing, electronic media is used in the form of an Amber Alert that can be put on highway signs, broadcast through television, sent via text message, and posted on social media networking websites. Another advantage is the simple convenience of being able to deliver information quickly. In times of tragedy or danger, television stations can interrupt programming to send a warning that you are in danger and follows with instructions to keep you safe. These are just a few of the major advantages of electronic media.
