Kavoori (journalism and mass communication, U. of Georgia) explains how to apply media criticism, which grew up addressing film and television, to such new media as downloading ring tones, making new Facebook friends, creating an avatar, and texting. He writes for undergraduate students of media criticism, assuming that they know all about the media under investigation but little or nothing about formal criticism of it. He recommends skepticism about the hype around the media, and hope about the promise that criticism can change the social order it is built on. His topics include methods, genre criticism and consumer-generated content, auteur criticism and social media, cultural criticism and the cell phone, and ethnographic criticism and video games.
