What Do You Think About Newspapers In This Era Of Social Media? by cupidkef(m): 10:07pm On Aug 20, 2017
Newspapers made sway in the 70s,80s,90s and even early 2ks but with the advent of the social media,I have lost every appetite in reading daily newspapers ,this is why;
I do virtually everything online,for example.....I got the info that buhari will be back on the 19th via the internet but the newspapers didn't even have that info until 20th,so tell me why I should patronize vendors if I get the news before them......

This is just my own opinion ,I know you have something to say ,i want to know your opinion on this matter.

To save cost, all Federal ministries/agencies should stop giving managers newspapers daily. They have computers (even though some of them don't know how to use it) and phones with data subscription which is paid by the government. Why give them 3 different newspapers daily? Is it that their work for the day is to read news or what? They have television also in their offices. We are just wasting money in this country


Social media will do to newspaper what email did to post office.

Hmmmmm. You buy the news with newspaper but with social media you buy the Internet which is your data and with your data, you can do nos of things meanwhile you give out the newspaper after reading.

Sales definitely dropped for them, same way albums hardly sell, when I can download online

Sad but it's the reality.

Social media, pain and gain

Newspapers would improve your grammar. Bloggers don't take writing seriously.

If you want to be a good writer, read newspapers esp Guardian and Thisday.

Newspaper will always remain the best, I love reading them, there are other sections on the N.P that are very enjoyable, you can be relaxed while reading the paper. they also improve your vocabulary and punctuation skills
hard copies are simply the best.

Hmm The newspaper industry is dying but the smart ones will not. The world is changing so also is the way we do things and live our lives. Unlike before where people only depend on newspaper as their only source of information, gone are the days , with the introduction of social media, online magazines, blogs, vlogs, newsletters she emails and above all your smart phones, you could get all these within minutes without blinking an eye.
Also i find newspaper naturally boring because of their nature of writing, too many words for an article that could have been summarised into few words and you will still get the message. I guess they do this to make the papers full. Thats why now so many newspaper industry have woken up to reality that linda ikeji back then when she doesn't have anyone working with her reaches more people and also make more money than all of them combined.

You are very correct bro,That is why it is called INTERNET. Secondly,It's like comparing someone sending an SMS with someone posting a letter...A good example is the OPERA-MINI,they update you every minute on NEWS & also ENTERTAINMENT...
