The term of new media has ensued with the development of technologies; for example of web 2.0, social media, weblog etc. New media has dispossessed the monopoly journalists, editors, media institutions of news source contrary to traditional media and included all segments of society. These developments have brought about big opportunities and some problems. Some of the advantages are new job opportunities these technologies give, employability, easier access to information and target group. One of the biggest problems is hate speech and crimes.
