Abstract

The internet has changed the way people find data. Connected 24/7 to the internet through their mobile phones and tablet computers, this new form of communication is influencing all those that earn their paycheck working with information. It seems that no other area is as affected as journalism in general and, in particular, the printed press. A combination of newspaper’s mistakes, technological advances and shifting consumer habits push the once king of the media to the brink of extinction. Media executives around the world are trying to put together a new economic model for the venerable newspaper. Even if they succeed, the media landscape is changed forever.

Keywords: Newspapers, Printed Press Crisis, Internet, Online Journalism
