With printed newspapers losing subscribers each day, people are finding other choices to keep up-to-date with their news. Newspaper sales reached their peak in 1970 when approximately 62 million newspapers were sold in the country each day. However, with the population in the U.S. on the rise, newspapers sales are not keeping up. It can be estimated that approximately 55 million newspapers can be bought every day.
From the 1920's the average newspaper purchased per household peaked at 1.3. In the 1970's that figure did start to dip to below 1 paper per house. The number dropped to.53 newspapers per household, by the year 2000.
One reason is that people just don't read as much as they used to. People are most often busier then just and ever don't make time to read anymore.
By watching the big three network news and cable news programs in place of the newspaper, many are switching their news habits. With the amount of options on TV news, apparently there is a news station for every single taste.
Although "older" adults still prefer newspapers, "young" adults have appeared to prefer to get their news from the web. The internet is quickly becoming the favorite source of news, especially in the form of news blogs, news portals and online newspapers, although tV news still is the most accessed news source.
Online news is gathering popularity each day. Virtually any major newspaper has a version of your online newspaper. Pioneers like Mike Drudge have been leading the way in independent news providers. And there are countless news blogs throughout the web.
Part of what makes news blogs so popular is that they can be used as an RSS feed. This permits this news feed to be utilized on other blogs over the web as well as allows the news feed to get read by many more viewers. People also love news blogs since you can leave comments and this generates a dialogue in the story which happens to be a great way to think that you are a part of the story.
Although newspapers can be on the decline, it does not always mean that people have stopped reading news reports, only where they read their news from. So, if you are not getting your news online, you may soon be in the minority, it seems that.For more information please visit News India
