2. Blogs: One of the earlier forms of new media, blogs have remained a strong source of information. Blogs are interactive and allow users to move through posts by searching tags or categories that match their interests.

3. Social media: The very nature of social media is to share, trade, and create data online. Thanks to the intuitive design, users can interact with people around the world through an Internet connection.

4. Digital games: Capable of building interaction in a community, digital games are also able to create cultural spaces that are inherently playful. In digital games, players can express their artistic ability and demonstrate different types of economies and cultures.
