Newspapers and magazines will not be available in the near future because large amounts of information from the Internet will replace them. Do you agree or disagree?


Bombarded by the massive information on the Internet, newspapers and magazines are increasingly losing their popularity in our society. From my perspective, considering the high cost and delayed information provided by newspapers and magazines, they will die out in the future.

To begin with, newspapers and magazines bear the higher cost compared with the Internet. Firstly, the cost comes from the raw materials needed to make these newspapers and magazines including ink, printing machines, papers, which can be a waste of resources and do no good to the sustainable development of the world.

Internet, however, needs almost nothing to get the information around, which can be conducive to the resources conservation. Secondly, the overhead cost for newspapers and magazines is quite high, which can be avoided by converting them onto the Internet.

In addition, newspapers and magazines fail to provide timely information, which can be a huge disadvantage in this fast-moving world, where consumers want to access the most newly-updated information. However, given the nature of newspapers and magazines, they can not satisfy such need. In comparison, Internet can do the job effectively. Apparently, consumers only need a cellphone to access the new information and they can scroll through their phones wherever they want to stave off their boredom by it on buses or on subways.

In conclusion, I believe that with the further development of the Internet, authoritative and well-regulated websites are able to provide high-quality and latest information instead of the traditional newspaper and magazine.
