“The Medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium/ that is, of any extension of ourselves/ result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology”

Marshall McLuhan

This results in that every medium conveys a message to it’s users from the light bulbs in their room, to the clothes they choose to wear that particular day, to the consumption of social media.
