^become increasingly popular in and has provided people with huge sources of information.As a result of this,
print media such as newspapers have experienced a dramatic decline in the number of readers.
-print media such as newspapers and?? or just say newspapers. By saying print media such as, and then offering only one example, is quite ineffective.
-in IT'S number of readers.
Some people, however, still believe that they
can exist for long time; others
^They? as in the people? We all want to believe we can exist for a long time.....
Unless, you meant newspapers.
disagree, arguing that newspapers have lost their competitive advantage to sustain their prolonged existence.
^lost IT'S competitive advantage.
Personally, I am inclined to agree with the latter view for following reasons.
^FOR THE FOLLOWING
First of all, to obtain information, using the internet is quicker and more convenient than reading newspapers.
^You can start of with 'firstly'.
using the internet is comparitively much quicker and more convenient to reading newspapers.
Contrary to the past when people had to wait long hours to take a daily newspaper, nowadays, they can acquire latest news updated every second through their mobile phones or computers connected to the internet, everywhere and at anytime.
^Unlike the past when people,
nowadays they can acquire the latest news which is updated every second on mobile phones or Internet connected computers, everywhere as well as at anytime.
As can be seen, these devices and machines are very common in all parts of the world, making it easier for people to read a number of things that newspapers can not provide in only some pages.
^Not quite sure where you are heading with this point.
Hence, the print media has failed to keep its important role in the provision of information.
Another point is that, from the economic aspect, buying newspapers appears to be a waste of money when the internet becomes available for every one.
^A rather poor sentence, its rather unclear and poorly structured.
^Also, would buying newspapers be cheaper than running a computer and paying Internet bills?
It is clear to recognize that the internet service is being provided at a low cost or even free in many countries.
^Free internet..where? I swear I never knew countries did this!
Also, you can also start the sentence by saying 'clearly'.
Clearly internet services ARE being provided at low costs and are even free in many countries.
The question arises as to whether or not a person spends an extra money buying newspapers to receive the same, even usually less information than those he can have with the internet?
The answer, perhaps, is that hardly would rational people do so.
^This is quite insulting to people who do prefer reading newspapers in comparison to reading the Internet on the news. People may not prefer using computers perhaps because they can not use it, it takes too long to download, or because its strainful for their eyes...
For this reason, the number of people reading newspapers may continue falling sharply, possibly leading to the close-downs of many in the coming time.
Last, but not least, when taking environment into consideration, people must conceive that the more newspapers are published, the more trees are cut down. This is simply the contributor to the deforestation which is happening all over the world today. At this point, newspapers' production will have to face environmentalists on its way to be alive.
^as more newspapers are published, more trees are cut down.
This contributes to the deforestation which is happening on a global scale today.
In conclusion, it might be unpleasant for some advocating newspapers to witness the extinction of the type of media.
^What are you talking about??
However, this, if occurring, should be seen as a result of the ever- increasing innovations in media technology and in our modern life as a whole.
^Not that great of a conclusion.
I do not know if you are supposed to evaluate in this essay, but if you are, you dont seem to have evaluated at all.
You just present a one sided view, with no consideration of how the newspaper industry can actually prosper.
An essay that can be worked on. Definitely.
