Abandoning Digital Publishing

Category: About Me


While going through the feedly website, I Found a story that definitely relates to last week’s lesson. The article is about rather or not the newspaper should abandon digital, the article is kind of leaning toward abandoning it.

The article makes a lot of valid points as to why the newspaper should abandon digital, but the one that stands out the most is, the newspaper just is good with digital publishing. Although I can see why the newspaper hasn’t abandon digital.

Digital has taken over and it would be difficult for the newspapers to just focus on print Journalism, because a lot of people are more into digital now. The reason why I say that this article can be related to last week’s lesson because of the discussion we had about Paywalls.  We looked at print journalism and online journalism, the reason why a lot of online websites are successful is because of paywalls, but its also because of the number of users for that website.

If you ask a lot of the staff that are working for a Newspaper company, they will probably tell you that the newspaper business isn’t as well right now, the main reason why is because of Digital publishing. I don’t think that Newspapers should abandon Digital, because that is probably all we are going to have in the future.

    I can understand why print newsrooms might think of just abandoning digital given all the challenges they face because of digital, but the problem isn’t that they’re involved in digital. Not participating in digital doesn’t make it go away. They’re still existing in a world where digital exists, and they have to participate.
