Internet News Equals Solitary Reading
Today, while many sit at the computer getting their daily news fix, it just doesn't seem the same as sitting with someone and reading the paper. Getting your daily news is now a solitary business. It's become a more isolated exercise and has lost the somewhat social aspect to it. When was the last time you sat with your significant other and read the internet together? Or sat in a conference room with coworkers and laptops perusing the daily news? No doubt that getting your news by internet is definitely a more private activity. It is the way of the future. As more and more content becomes available on-line, the very real fact is that the days of print media are sadly numbered and the days of people sharing news as a social activity along with it. Unfortunately this proves once again that the more we move forward, the more we move within ourselves.
