Traditionally, projects based on the modernization and diffusion theories are designed in a way to relay messages working through the individual psychology of the receivers of information; less attention is given to types of effects that occur in collective and social levels. Papa and others (2000) wrote: Most past communication research on media effects consists of surveys or experiments in which unconnected individuals are the units of response and the units of analysis. Such research designs necessarily make it difﬁcult to investigate the social context in which media effects occur, and concepts like collective efﬁcacy and community action cannot easily be measured.
