Online News – Pros and Cons
The newspapers barely got used to the news broadcast on television when the advent of the Internet suddenly hit the newspaper industry. Most newspapers could not cope with the onslaught of the Internet and had to be closed. First let's see the basic difference between newspapers and e-news.
Benefits of Online News
The benefits of online news are especially for the readers. Some of these benefits are as follows.
The e-news are much faster than the newspapers. As soon as something happens in any part of the world, it will be posted on the internet in seconds. Newspapers have a specific deadline for reporting news in a particular newspaper. Suppose the newspaper is printed at midnight. Anything that happens after midnight will most likely be published the next day. In such situations, the newspaper offers outdated messages to readers who have already accessed the online news.
Each newspaper is published once, twice or no more than three times a day. On the other hand, e-news are usually updated several times within 24 hours.
If you have access to the Internet, you do not have to wait for the deliverer to deliver the newspaper.
E-News should save paper and help protect nature.
Disadvantages of online news
The online news has a few drawbacks, but it is mainly related to newspaper publishers. Prices for subscriptions and ads are greatly reduced for online news. This means that as the number of online news readers increases, the newspaper publisher's earnings fall dramatically.
Ways to survive for the newspapers
There are few opportunities the newspapers can use to survive the shock of e-news. Some newspapers require a subscription for readers who want to read more than is offered for free. There is only one link for "more" that is activated and ready after paying some subscription fees. If you do not pay the subscription, the link "More" can not be activated.
Most newspaper publishers have realized they need to publish the paper both online and online to survive.
The iPad from Apple has brought the newspapers hope. There are applications that allow the iPad user to access the Internet and newspapers.
Today, the newspaper has to make its readers a unique offer.
The other way for newspaper publishers to survive is blogging. There is a possibility that by collecting a subscription, revenues will be reduced. At the same time, however, it also becomes clear that unique blogs can bring a lot of business to the newspaper publisher.
