Mass media is a significant force in modern culture, particularly in America. Sociologists refer to this as a mediated culture where media reflects and creates the culture. Communities and individuals are bombarded constantly with messages from a multitude of sources including TV, billboards, and magazines, to name a few. These messages promote not only products, but moods, attitudes, and a sense of what is and is not important. Mass media makes possible the concept of celebrity: without the ability of movies, magazines, and news media to reach across thousands of miles, people could not become famous.

Mass Media, Culture and Society in Twentieth-Century Germany
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This is the first study of mass media in Germany from a social and cultural-historical perspective. Beyond the conventional focus on organizational structures or aesthetic content, it investigates the impact the media has on German society under varying political systems, and how the media is shaped by wider social, political and cultural context. What their volume does, however, is more than that. For it also brings politics back into social and cultural history by demonstrating that, in an era of democratization and consumption, the spheres of politics on the one hand, and culture, entertainment and leisure on the other, could not be kept as clearly separated from each other as before.

Media, Culture & Society
In cultural studies , media culture refers to the current Western capitalist society that emerged and developed from the 20th century, under the influence of mass media. The alternative term mass culture conveys the idea that such culture emerges spontaneously from the masses themselves, like popular art did before the 20th century. Another alternative term for media culture is "image culture. Media culture, with its declinations of advertising and public relations, is often considered as a system centered on the manipulation of the mass of society. The news media mines the work of scientists and scholars and conveys it to the general public , often emphasizing elements that have inherent appeal or the power to amaze.
The purpose of this chapter is to define media, society and culture broadly. Chapters 2 and 3 deal with communication theory in more detail. Digital culture is covered in depth in Chapter 2. There are different forms of communication. The most common symbols we use are verbal and written words, but there are also many forms of nonverbal communication such as American Sign Language.
