Difference between online and print.

One of the biggest differences between the two is the ability for online news can be edited and changed at whim depending on what turn the story has taking. Newspapers cannot re edit after they have been released to the general subject and any new updates must then be turned into a newsworthy piece.

While the print version uses images and broken up columns of text and simpler design an online version has to be focused on more visually since it’ll grasp the reader’s attention. Especially when having to take the time to browse through a site since you have to make it easily accessible to all member of the public. The news paper does not have that slight complication.

Stories can be spread through social media and external sites giving online journalism a much greater chance of getting the word to people online while newspapers are very static and rely on the front page to drag people in. The difference being the accessibility of both mediums.
