Print media today
By Jana Zhilyakova | June 30, 2016
Many people think, very soon, the printed media will disappear completely.
Most adults believe that the new generation does not know how to read newspapers, do not know what the magazines are, rarely take in their hands real books they want to read.
Students get the textbooks from school libraries according to their school program, but there are also students who download books for tablets, so that they don’t need to carry «the mountain of extra paperwork» with them every day. One of my friends said: ‘Why should I take the time to pack my schoolbag, put all my books in it, to carry this burden on my shoulders to school, and then to carry it home, if I can take to school only my tablet that weighs less than one book. «?
Every year, the number of students who feel this way increases. Teens no longer read what is printed. They are more attracted to what they see on the screen. Many download applications guarantee the people that they will be informed about everything that happens in the world every day, and about the people around them.
The younger generation spends too much time on the Internet, rather than reading a book or learning something new from newspapers and magazines. Many do not realize that they will get more inspiration, by reading what is printed on the paper. One book or even a magazine article, can give you so many thoughts, tell you so much about people lives, and give you many impressions.
I often think about how people write books, conquering the minds of people only by their imagination, surprise others by how eloquently they can describe the latest developments. But for whom they do it? For people who are not even interested in what is happening in the area in which they live? So it turns out that the new generation restricts itself from the print media. Why do many people prefer to learn something on the Internet, if there are resources that are available to everybody in print media?
It can be concluded that many people are right, and the print media very soon, maybe even in ten years, will disappear or will not be interesting anymore to the following generations.
