However, nowadays, it can be seen that the traditional media tools which have become more commercialized due to the monopolization rather than meeting people’s expectations and wishes, have lost their basic functions of informing and educating the public. The emergence of the digital media platforms due to the development of new communication technologies and internet as a global network has enabled information to be transferred quickly, instantly and interactively.
