With the technological advancement we are seeing in today’s world, one cannot but wonder what is happening to our old tools?
On of those tools are newspapers.
Wikipedia defines a newspaper as “a regularly scheduled publication containing news, information, and advertising, usually printed on relatively inexpensive, low-grade paper such as newsprint.”
Wikipedia also adds that by 2007 there were 6580 daily newspapers in the world selling 395 million copies a day. The worldwide recession of 2008, combined with the rapid growth of web-based alternatives, caused a serious decline in advertising and circulation, as many papers closed or sharply retrenched operations.
Learning about this drop in the sales of newspaper made me curious.
What about you? Do you still buy the newspaper?
