Print vs. Online

I looked at an article from Mondays Emerald about duck uniforms and compared it to the online version. This article did not have a multimedia package as a counter part so the main difference was the amount of pictures available. In the print version, there were only two pictures. In the online version, there are six. There is also a place to comment on articles in the online version, so you can discuss with other users your thoughts on what was presented. This aspect seems really cool because it creates a dialogue that print media doesn’t have. It also has “share” buttons on the bottom so you can easily share the article with a friend via facebook or google. None of these features make the actual writing any better or worse, but they do add to the piece as a whole.
