Facing the popularization of the Internet, online communication has a significant impact on traditional media, especially on newspapers, and some even predict that newspapers will fully disappeared by 2040. Senior Journalists from the mainland argue that the rise of new media is overwhelming, however it does not mean that traditional media will no be able to survive.



Traditional media will not be eliminated

Today, Hong Kong Shue Yan University have held a "media ecology in the network age seminar" and invited more than 20 representatives from the mainland, Macau, and Hong Kong's media fields. The Vice Editor-in-Chief of Tencent (QQ.COM) Li Fang said that though new media is putting pressure on the traditional media, there are signs that new media cannot replace traditional media. Li Fang added that the invention of radio did not replace newspapers, and the invention of TV did not replace radio; applying the same logic to the rise of new media means that it will not lead to the disappearance of traditional media. Lee thinks that this is because humans demand different types of media according to different conditions. The magazine, or example, is no longer the mainstream media source, but it is still there, and it still has its market and audience.

The impact of mobile access to the Internet

According to a survey, each citizen has 3 mobile phones on average and it has become a norm that they use those mobile devices to access the internet. Li Fang said that the mobile phone has largely been an important platform of media, and will continue to be so in the future. Lee said that mobile phones spread news much faster compared to traditional media. For example, the message of Bin Laden's death was able to be spread on the Internet in just 30 minutes. News spreading faster can make communities undergo substantial change, because the public can share their opinions on the internet.


[This is a fantastic, well written, article. One minor issue, though, is that you had many commas and run-on sentences. If you are using more than three commas in a sentence, try to look for places where you can insert full stops or semicolons instead; this will help improve readability.]

[For future reference, articles must be COMPLETED (yes, this includes formatting) and submitted by midnight on Tuesdays. If ANY edits are made after midnight, the article will not be graded.]
