Question of the day – Where Do You Get Your News?
At one time, not so long ago, I had a subscription to the local newspaper that I read faithfully every day. In fact, I couldn’t go to bed unless I had read that day’s edition. I also supplemented reading the newspaper by watching the evening news. Then I discovered the World Wide Web and learned that I could get all the news I wanted right online.
That stopped me from purchasing the local newspaper – in turn saving me money each month. Between the news on TV and the websites available such as CNN and ABC News – I just no longer needed to be spending that money on the paper.
Interestingly enough – take a look at this infographic, as I am not alone.
I find it interesting that it’s cheaper for companies in the long run to run a Press Release online. It’s cheaper – it’s faster and us online folks – we benefit from that. We can find information online from any place on the planet and faster at that. What a concept!
I realize that for some folks old habits are hard to break. Some people will always wait for the next edition of their newspaper to arrive. Some – will wait to see if it’s on a television news station. No matter what way one chooses – that’s a personal preference for each of us to decide.
How do you prefer to hear about the latest events? I’d love to hear your take on your preferences!
