(Next time, please don't put your name in the middle of the article. I have emphasized for the nth time that this is the Apple Daily format which no other established newspaper would care to adopt. The first sentence in your lead was totally redundant and so was the second one. You should just go straight to the point that the popularity of smartphones and the 4G communication technology will together propel journalism to a new bright era. SCMP and Oriental Daily did not make 5 to 7 billion dollars during that period, they individually made 500 to 700 million dollars a year during that period. You apparently mistook billion for 億. The Chinese 億 means 100 million. You said "But as the need of information increased, newspaper industry is declining", may I ask why so? )


In these days, smart phone is a common tool for people getting news and information from the internet. People tend to check their email, texts and the most updated news every minute. Tim Chan, the executive chief editor of Hong Kong Economic Journal said, smart phone does make the future of journalism industry optimistic, ‘I think this is the best era for journalism.’

In the past, people got news from newspaper in the morning and television news report at night only. Newspaper industry was blooming in 80s to 90s, for example, South China Morning Post and Oriental Daily News make 5-7 billion in that period of time. But as the need of information increased, newspaper industry is declining. Tim said, ‘as you can see in the morning; there is only few people read newspaper in the MTR.’


With the available of the smart phone and high accessibility of the internet, people are becoming more eager to get information. ‘It’s like an addiction since they can’t keep themselves away from the internet or social media. ‘Tim said. ‘The format of media is not a matter nowadays, what matters now is people can’t live without media. Therefore, the demand for news is increasing rapidly and the market is still large.’ He thought this is the golden era for developing journalism and felt optimistic to the future of journalism.
