Social Media has already changed the way we interact with each other, now the biggest impact is on newspapers. As we see in earlier days people use to depend a lot on the newspaper to know what is happening around them. People use to wait for newspaper & even they used to carry them to offices also. But when there is a drastic change in technology, the way smartphones occupied the space in the market & the apps which are developed for news; the interest towards the newspaper has decreasing day-by-day and the consumers are not showing interest to buy it. But young members of families are found to be more inclined to read news online or on social media, Facebook is the main player in this regard. Currently, the time spent by youth on newspaper reading has come down to half of what it was earlier.
Here’s how news channels, social media platforms and publishers are changing the way we consume news:
