Is print slowly dying? My answer is yes. Because of the invention of PDAs and online news, less and less people are going to newspapers or magazines for news. Getting your news instantly is more convenient.Twitter provides news in less than 10 words in each tweet. News websites update info 24/7 instantly. However, I do enjoy curling up in a chair during the evening reading a magazine, and I enjoy drinking coffee while reading a newspaper in the morning. There a positives and negatives about print disappearing. Will it be totally gone? Maybe, I really don’t know.
I decided to talk about this because of a blog on Pr Squared called Death of Print? . The blog talks about how print journalism is disappearing, and how it may be positive.
What? Positive? I know that’s what I said. But, Todd has some good points. Printing is very expensive and uses a lot of paper. Imagine all the trees we can save, and how much money will be saved.
