A lady sits near the aisle deftly tapping on her Ipad; a man next to her scrolls through his Blackberry trackpad; a young man sitting across from both of them has his eyes fixed on his Kindle; while next to him sits a college girl with her laptop. Riding an early morning train from Long Island to Penn Station, New York, will give you a glimpse of how we’ve come to exchange information in the digital age. The tools and technologies that people use today are transforming the way we view and publish media content.
A recent (2010) study done by Nielson found that:
· Over 303 million people view more than 2.5 billion web pages each month.
· More than 123 million Americans are online each month, with the average viewer reading more than 43 articles or news items a month.
In the past, traditional journalism served as a medium in which people received news, current events and shared opinions. As digital content publishers build strong foundation of resources and credibility, more and more people are turning online to complement television and print publications.
So, what makes up this digital landscape?
