Welcome to the new, Digital age
We know People are spending more and more time in front of “screens”, whether that’s the TV, computer, tablet or mobile phone. Still print isn’t dead, but it is changing dramatically. And the argument now isn’t so much about where content should live; it’s that content should live everywhere. So, What’s really changing is the role of content itself. On the other hand, the readers are evolving, too. They are less passive end-users and are starting to create content of their own. They expect interaction in their everyday readings (such as commenting, social media liking and sharing), multimedia (video and sound clips, eye catching animations) and of course, feedback (a proof that the editors of their favorite magazines really hear their requests, critics or compliments).
