  5. 5. After reading and generating information from the study written by Anita Whiting and David Williams I came up with that this study seeks to demonstrate the importance of uses and gratifications theory to social media by applying uses and gratifications theory and focuses on why people use particular media.

  7. 7. In my opinion, most of the theories on media explain about the effects media has on people. It is the theory which explains of how people use media for their need and gratification. This theory states what media does to people and not what people do with media. Theorists argue that people's needs influence how they use and respond to a medium. Uses & Gratification can be seen as part of a broader trend amongst media researchers which is more concerned with 'what people do with media', allowing for a variety of responses and interpretations. However, some commentators have argued that gratifications could also be seen as effects, for example thrillers are likely to generate very similar responses amongst most viewers.
  8. 8. This research demonstrates the importance and usefulness of uses and gratifications theory to social media research. The application of uses and gratifications theory to social media helps explain the many and varied reasons why consumers use and like social media. The findings from the in- depth interviews provide a very rich and comprehensive understanding of why consumers utilize social media. These findings can help businesses to more effectively market to and communicate with its existing and potential customers.
