There were similar websites/concepts, but they were based on earlier technologies, mainly on mobile phones using MMS. They would never be able to provide the full range of services offered by the new technology on Internet news sites.
Mobile phone technology
Although mobile phones successfully transmit information and photos, such as the tsunami in Thailand, the mobile network often cannot cope with traffic during such an event. The networks were overflowing with people trying to call friends or relatives to see if they were safe.
At the same time, when the London bombings occurred, cellular networks were unable to cope, and the situation was exacerbated by people who constantly insisted on repeating themselves.
Phone networks expect a certain amount of traffic, depending on the number of people who have subscribed to the network; The Internet operates on a different principle and therefore does not cease to function effectively in an era of increasing communication.
The speed at which the latest news arrives on the Internet cannot be improved because it only takes a few minutes for the user/reporter to send the news in 3 simple steps:
- Click to write and report news
- Add videos, photos and tags.
- Sign in or sign up to send
Coverage of a news website in the UK is usually:
London and The South West
European and global coverage.
There may also be other tabs for travel news, entertainment, sports, business, politics, technology. New websites that use content management systems, such as Drupal (used by the White House), can easily manage vast amounts of information.
News from anywhere in the world can be published on the site as easily and quickly as regional news, and the user can read the news of interest with one click.
This contrasts with the round-the-clock television news, where the viewer must see information that may not be relevant for him while waiting for his reporting. If they connect to the same news channel 24 hours a day, 30 minutes later, they may find that some of the information is in a loop, and they will have to repeat the same story again, even if it is not. interested for the first time. .
24 hours a day, iPad and mobile Internet devices
The Internet is now the best medium for round-the-clock news coverage due to the increasing use of mobile Internet devices. Examples include iPads, tablets, laptops and latest-generation mobile phones with fast and efficient Internet access.
Today’s young specialist uses more and more information sites on the Internet at home and at work. They can quickly increase news, business or travel and then move on to the next item in their busy schedule.
When a large number of consumers bought and used cell phones in addition to their landlines or as an alternative to landlines, it affected the way we communicate. It is expected that a large number of consumers will buy and use mobile Internet devices in addition to or as an alternative to their ‘stationary’ (broadband or network at work/university), more widespread use will have very successful people working for news sites.
