Definition Edit

Convergent media refers to

digital media that bring together two or more traditional media forms such as text, video, voice, etc. In particular CM denotes online sites and practices where media-blending is essential to their form e.g. social networking sites, online games and virtual worlds.[1]

Overview Edit

Convergent Media pose a challenge to policy makers as they are sites which force an overlap of traditional media boundaries and consequently policy/legal/regulatory boundaries e.g. where audio-visual, telecommunications, consumer, intellectual property and tax regulations may all apply equally to an online artifact and/or practice.[2]
