Internet : one of main information sources

. Jumat, 23 Oktober 2009

internet is increasingly developing into a source of news and information. Even now have beaten the other media except television as the primary source of national and international news. So is the survey conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press in the United States in December.

40 percent of respondents admitted that they obtain national and international news from the Internet, jumped 20 percent compared to September 2007. For the first time since the survey was held, people said that they mostly rely on the Internet as a news source, compared with a newspaper, which is only 35 percent of respondents selected. Television, still the most superior as the main source of information, which is chosen by 70 percent of respondents.

Trends in the Internet as a source of primary information applies to the young. Nearly 6 out of 10 respondents aged under 30 or rather 59%, stated that they have national and international news online. Meanwhile, the same percentage also said the television. Earlier, in September 2007, 68% said the main news source is television, the Internet compared to 34%.

Among the news of the most widely observed by the public include the financial crisis, rising fuel prices some time ago, the problem bailout, and the U.S. Presidential Election.

Shows the percentage of young people who make it big in the internet as a source of information. This is probably because they are also more active in the Internet and utilize the latest technology. In contrast to their older, perhaps more like the conservative media like television.

Now the news and information circulating on the Internet not only through the news portals only. Starting from emails, blogs to social networking sites played a big part in spreading news and information quickly. Through Twitter, for example, people can directly distribute updates in a few seconds and then immediately spread throughout the world. Then, bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious and others also play an active role in the spread of news and information important.

So this shows that it is not possible in the next few years, Internet and television roles become equal as the main source of information. In fact, the Internet has a big chance to beat television, given the increasing trend. Estimated, with more and more Internet users around the world, the Internet's role in life will also become increasingly large
