According to an interesting post in Online Media Daily more Americans turn to electronic media (internet and television) during times of recession. The reasons range from having more free time on their hands, seeking an alternative to paid entertainment options, and the ever-growing need for economic information and advice. It’s interesting to note that more people who have broadband in their households get their economic information from web content whereas in households that don’t have broadband, the internet ranks third behind television and print. It’s also interesting that people are using television, print and the Internet simultaneously to get a clearer picture of the economic landscape. I fall into that category. In fact, I have CNN on right now as I multi-task between blogs and newsfeeds. But I must admit, my newspapers are still in the driveway. Who has the time?
