I further would like to state as a reflection to the article that participatory communication methods involve various approaches as a means to create and express knowledge often in a visual manner, expressive manner and non-dialogical manner in comparison to the traditional outputs textually (Telo, 2013). They have the power of complementing research based analytical dimensions. This is due to their capability of accessing and conveying other knowledge forms as a way to know which might have intuitiveness, tacit ability, embodiment, artistic ability, symbolic nature, spirituality or culture. I assume that such type of information can get lost when translating it especially when attempt is made at trying to develop or communicate the results by traditional outputs of research only.
The article in discussion within this paper elaborates on new media related changing notion which is the newly emerging practice of media. Such practices have pointed towards a culture environment that results in blurring the traditional division between customers and producers. Appropriation, re-elaboration and play abound, within it, are socialized increasingly. This socialization is accompanied by co-creation and participation embedded in them. Discourses on the other hand, even within productions for mainstream and fundamental element engagement of any endeavor creatively, can be depicted. This does not mean, however, that such practices essential result towards newly produced environment of participation. This article showed through thorough practice analysis that there are various contradictions in various experiences of participation (Telo, 2013).
This implies that participants do not have any real power to make decision and are often treated as target audiences with high privilege. This article has paved way for future based research as well in the sense that it looks at offering insight into necessary innovations and reproductions that take place from these practices. The article further clearly elucidates that the act to contribute towards an appealing method can be more essential than the outcome finally achieved. This is because it helps in providing a chance to either obtain pleasure or performance or interaction with social peers across a cultural environment that can be evident as highly innovative and relevant socially.
