Viewing sport channels, searching for professional leagues games scores on the web, and listening to rap and Latino music, people can surely get a sense of what I like and enjoy doing on my spare time. This is because when it comes to media or social media, each individual tends to only see or view what they like.  I truly believe that media influences how we see ourselves and how others view us. This is because the types of television programs, websites, and the music people sees and listen are examples of peoples’ identifiers. For example, if I were to ask my classmates about who is watching the Super Bowl this weekend, most likely my classmates will identify me as a football or sport fan. Whereas, if I asked my classmates who sees TV and not specify the TV programs, I really won’t know what type of television programs they like to see. Also, if I see an Instagram or Facebook user posting more than one CNN articles on politics, this is a cue that this user likes politics and that CNN is his/her media source .
