Newspaper circulation on the decline

It was reported recently that many major newspapers have seen a marked decrease in their print circulation numbers.  This isn’t a truly obscure thought, as we realize that online news has become the standard for a new generation of info-hounds.   This political election should help to illustrate this fact as the immediacy of information no longer allows the print industry to remain current.  Sure we see the print versions with similar content, but the prevailing winds of change will most definitely begin to blow toward the bits and bytes contrary to the analog.

From the moment the news is released it can now be rehashed, shared, commented upon, cited, and seen within nanoseconds.  As much fun as cutting newspapers up and using them in scrapbooks, media has certainly found more social interaction with their online variations than their traditional formats.

    Interesting post. You know, when I got to work and see the “older folk” reading newspapers, it seems very odd and archaic. In the age of twitter, google reader, and i-phones, it just seems like you can customize the news so why kill the trees and deal with the hassle. Cosmo has already started canceling a lot of its magazines and turning them strictly into blogs.

    Who said the dot com boom was useless. Thank God for the infrastructure. lol
