There was a time when the only source of news for the people was the print media. Over the years their popularity has not reduced, but there was certainly a dent created in the overwhelming popularity with the advent of radio first and electronic visual media like TV and videos next. They were also much faster and updated in comparison to their print media counterpart, and gradually people turned their attention to this electronic audio and visual media for latest news.
While many people, especially those from the older generations are still attached to print, and electronic media, a new and faster source has entered the fray. This is Internet, and World Wide Web that is gradually becoming a part of the daily lives of the people and most people are resorting to this new and very powerful online news for anything from latest business news through news on entertainment, sports, politics, economics, science, technologies, and such others. It is not only the largest existing library on the planet earth but also the largest updated news source in existence for any information seeker.
One of the reasons is that people simply do not read as often as they used to. People seem busier than ever, and just do not spend time reading.
Many change the habits of their news, watching three big network news and TV programs in place of the newspaper. With so many options on TV news, it looks like there’s a news station for every taste.
Although many “adult” adults still prefer newspapers, “young” adults seem to prefer to receive news on the Internet. Television news is still the most accessible source of news, but the Internet is quickly becoming a favorite source of news, especially in the form of news blogs, news portals, and online newspapers.
The daily news is becoming more popular. And there are many news blogs on the Internet. Part of what makes news blogs so attractive is that they can be used as an RSS feed. This allows you to use the news feed on other blogs throughout the Internet, and also allows you to read the news feed by a much larger number of viewers.
Although newspapers may be in decline, this does not mean that people have stopped reading the news, only where they read their news. Thus, it seems that if you do not receive your news on the Internet, you may soon find yourself in the minority.
