The Need for instant gratification.

People are becoming more demanding nowadays and that is because in this day and age, people don’t want to wait for the next day to see news coming in their newspaper and by the time they have it in their hands, the world has moved on much farther away. Although, different people buy newspapers for different reasons like sports perspective, comics, advertisement etc but the whole internet phenomenon has changed the way people read and watch news. Now everything they want is live or instantly. They may still read the newspapers but not for stale news but for in-depth analysis of a news event.

I, for one am a news junkie and read almost eight to nine news websites each day and sometimes even more than that to find out different articles and perspective of different experts on a wide range of topics. The best thing about the internet is that it satisfies the need for speed as on any given hour, the web sites are updated two to three and maybe more times. This flexibility and instant update feature can never be achieved with newspapers, magazines or any other printed media. And the best thing is that you can reach out to the internet while you are at the go since smart phones with internet ready capabilities are readily available. This need for speed has made people more informed and updated about events due to the instant availability of the internet anywhere they are.
