Online news sites affecting newspaper volumes.
Ever since newpaper publishers went online and made their content available on the internet, I already assumed that it would someday affect the volume of their readership. I for one have long ago stopped my Inquirer subscription in favor of the online site of Inq7.net. Likewise, with all other sites like Manila Bulletin and Manila Times among others which also made their contents available online, the pass-on readership would have likely to go down as well.
The idea came to mind when some friends and I were discussing career opportunities with Inq7.net (seen the flash job ad on their site?), and how I used to want to work with their IT team years ago. I have met several people who used to work there and they told me about the working conditions and the pay scale. Well, seems like the most widely visited Philippine site doesn’t really earn that much from online advertising.
