In many countries, very few young people read newspapers or follow the news on TV. What do you think are the causes of this? What solutions can you suggest?

The
newspaper
had remained a viable source of knowledge in the 20th century. At those times, the
Newspaper
was the only accessible medium of getting informed with surrounding and the latest happenings. With the rapid insurgency in the earth of technology, several innovations led to the modification in process of acquiring knowledge through the
newspapers
. Several origins have contributed towards its downfall, yet the existence of
newspapers
still resides in today's world. Enumerating a few of the major factors in the downward spiral of the
news
consumption through
newspapers
,
firstly
, with the mass growth of social media podium and easily accessible nature of everything on the aforementioned mediums has led to the redundancy in the usage of
newspaper
in daily lives or through the television. People can now get easily updated with events and the latest happenings locally and globally around nature within few seconds.
Thus
, enabling limited usage of
newspapers
and televisions.
For instance
, through Facebook, users get various
news
feeds on different genres of discussions in no matter of time( at a doorstep of a fingertip).
Secondly
, with the technological advancements and cut-off pricing competition in the market, a plethora of
news
channels
have shifted their focus on adapting effective
channels
of communications
such
as disseminating the
news
through e-
newspaper
instead
of the traditional way of paper-based magazines. As it curtails the cost of miscellaneous expenses that occur in printing and hefty stationery charges,
thus
letting various
news
agencies opt for an online mode of communication. Namely, one of the oldest and popular
newspaper
company in Pakistan Dawn
news
, has effectively reduced application of printed
newspapers
thus
reducing it printing cost and moving towards a more feasible and accessible online
newspaper
platform by the masses. Interestingly,
on the contrary
, a lot of
information
shared on social media platforms lacks the element of reliability
thus
discrediting its source. As the majority of shared
information
lacks genuineness.
For instance
, often
information
shared on the social terrace is misled to attract views and subscriptions
thus
ultimately misleading the consumer of
such
news
.
Hence
restrictions on
news
availability through online social platforms should be imposed.
Moreover
, the habit of reading a
newspaper
should be instilled from a young age as it strengthens reading and writing skills, improves vocabulary, and enables students to be updated with recent ongoing researches and various projects. In conclusion, albeit the consumption of
newspapers
and
news
on TV
channels
has been spiralling downward for years, yet its non-existence in our practical lives is impractical. Keeping in mind above mentioned solutions, a revival can be forecasted in the earth of
information
through
newspapers
and TV
channels
.
