Online messaging services have many uses, and because of this, they have many advantages. They include: Unlike watching the news on TV or listening to the news on the radio, online news services allow users to choose which articles to listen to, watch, or read.
This is useful because people don't "waste" their "time" on articles they don't care about – they're just told about what interests them. All news from around the world in one place – you don't have to switch between websites to get news from different countries. You can read the great awakening reports to get knowledge of what's happening around the world.
There is no limit to the number of articles that can be read. With newspapers, people can only read articles in the newspaper.
Newspapers cannot be updated because they are physical. So when a story has an edge, people have to wait for the next issue to hear it. When an article is online, it can be updated automatically, so all updates are instant and you don't have to wait until they are available.
Online news services have the ability to make articles more interactive. Videos can be embedded in the article along with text and images if the article is virtual; It is not possible to embed a video in a newspaper as it is physical and cannot be edited.
It is more economical than other news dissemination methods as it only requires journalists and a website for journalists to post articles.
Newspapers need the paper; lots of trees to cut down. There is also a need for ink, printers and wholesale distributors, and journalists researching an event.
