Once, it was hard to imagine a morning without a newspaper. We wake up, have a cup of coffee and read the newspapers to find the latest news in the country and the world. Today the world has changed. Every hour there is news, every minute something happens. To receive the latest news, all you need to do is go to the Internet. And if you prefer, you can even get updates (results of football matches, for example), right on the mobile phone. And this, of course, without any mention of TV news channels, which broadcast 24 hours a day. So who really needs newspapers and there is still the future of this industry?
First of all, many people read newspapers out of habit. Indeed, why, to change anything? Why turn on a computer or a television if tomorrow morning we will find a newspaper at the door. And if there was something wrong earlier, we’ll probably hear about it on TV. The feeling of reading the newspaper is like reading books, and it is ingrained in many people. You can read during meals, in bed before sleeping, or even in the bathroom. You can certainly use the laptop in these places, but it’s much less convenient.
Major newspapers around the world have noticed this problem for a long time. They understand that Internet news is the future. It should also join this trend and this will help promote the newspaper in particular. Who does not, will be left behind. Creating a popular new site with interesting material doesn’t hurt the newspaper, but it also broadens the sources of funding. Many of those who advertise on the Internet are not always advertised in newspapers. So, a circle, in which the newspaper promotes the website and the website, brings new readers to the newspaper. Of course, a website that is owned by a well-known newspaper has a great place to start on the Internet.
Statistics from around the world show that the number of newspaper readers is decreasing every year, which is very reasonable. The younger generation has no natural attraction to paper, newspapers and books and they are more drawn to buttons and screens. Therefore, it is clear that slowly most of the newspaper budget will go to the Internet. During this transition period, they must retain their best reporters, otherwise their level will drop, and they will lose many readers.
Personally, my family and I have long since stopped reading newspapers, and it happened as soon as I realized that all the news I was reading there, I already knew on websites or on TV. If the newspaper does not give new information, then why buy it and spend precious time. Online news sites save you time, allow you to filter content, and make finding information comfortable and efficient. I like sites that bring together the latest news from different sources. In this way, you can get practical and reliable objective information.
