But things started to change well before the Web became popular. As discontent grew among the audience, the Internet arrived. Connecting Through Trust The truth is the Internet didn’t steal the audience. Trust is key. Mainstream media are low on the trust scale for many and have been slow to reach out in a genuine way to engage people.

Relying on Collective Wisdom Today’s new culture is about connection and relationship. Changing Journalism’s Culture. The History of Visual Communication. This website, which contains the material of the course VA312, taught at Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey; attempts to walk you through the long and diverse history of a particular aspect of human endeavour: The translation of ideas, stories and concepts that are largely textual and/or word based into a visual format, i.e. visual communication.

Wikipedia defines visual communication as: The primary tool by which man has visualised ideas is through the usage of writing and, by extension, type: Writing/type is the visual manifestation of the spoken word.
