The Death of Print [INFOGRAPHIC]

By Rob McNair


With the whole #superinjunction debate raging, seemingly inflicting a bigger and bigger wedge between mainstream and non-mainstream media, Get Satisfaction has created an INFOGRAPHIC with the not-so-subtle heading ‘Death of Print’ highlighting how the days may well be numbered for good ol’ fashioned ‘paper’ as a news source.

We couldn’t have put the summary better ourselves, so we let them –  ‘while 2010 may not have been the year that print died, it was certainly the year it bled ink.’ Including plenty of statistics to support the notion that print’s days are running out (let’s face it, we all knew that), the graphic also interestingly illustrates how the iPad may well be the medium’s killer but could also be it’s saviour should publishers refine and perfect what content they put out.
