The Frequent Asked Question are as follow:
Can print compete with online Journalism? Print is traditional and cannot compete with online which is in the era of internet and its news is immediate.
What have been the defining factors in the growth of online media? Is it mostly down to convenience, lowered costs or advancing technology?
It depends who you’re referring to and what you mean by ‘defining factors’ – defining in what ways?
For media organisations that existed before the web, it was both an opportunity to access new revenue streams, but more importantly defend against potential new competitors.
Working online has changed my writing effectively, because it help me to cultivate the habit of reading and as am reading am checking the style of the writer whether it is humour, satire or philosophical.
Do you think that working online has allowed you to be more open and express your opinions more freely than through another medium (e.g. print)?
Absolutely, but I don’t think that’s to do with the medium so much as the institutional framework surrounding that.
