Beyond the Digital Divide: A Look at Media Expectancies across Seven Media and Three Racial Subgroups

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

First-level digital divide research centered on the gap between people who did or did not have access to the Internet and the subsequent social inequities caused by a lack of access to information. Although such imbalanced access to digital media appears to be dissipating, other social inequities - from health to education - remain a serious concern across racial subgroups. The purpose of this study was to contribute to the digital divide and knowledge gap discourse from a macro-level perspective based on today’s rich media environment. The current analysis supports the notion that although media usage differences based on race alone have waned, racial subgroups do differ in their motivations to use various media. The findings highlight how media is used differently across racial subgroups, which increases our understanding of the relative utility these media – both traditional and new. These insights into which media channels are preferred by certain subgroups are important in order to effectively disseminate information that might narrow any existing gaps in knowledge and other disparities.
