Future of Newspaper
There are assumptions going on about the future of newspapers. However, most agree that physical newspaper are no longer needed with the emergence of online newspapers. However, there are also people who still consider physical newspaper as important aspect especially for archives. Digital news are efficient but they depend on internet data.
Thus, people still consider physical newspaper important for archiving just in case there will be problems arise with the internet data changes in the future. Physical newspaper will be the source of information if internet connection shuts down. Well, it sounds like apocalypse movie but it makes sense anyway.
Actually, internet is not to blame of the declining of newspapers. The declining demand has started since the emergence of TV and radio station. That’s the beginning of when newspaper were gradually declined. This brought to bankruptcy to some press agency but it was a long time coming. With the movement of digital era, the future of newspaper has been changed.
It is not bad after all because today, people can read news through their digital devices such as tablet, smartphone, etc. physical newspaper might turn into extinction someday but it doesn’t mean for total disappearance. It only change in form from physical to digital. It brings more efficiency both to time and money.
