One time I asked my co-Journalism student, “Where do you prefer to apply for our OJT? Online companies or Print?” She says, “I prefer online because it is easier, I guess.”

What is Digital Journalism? Digital journalism or online journalism is a contemporary form of journalism where editorial content is distributed via the internet as opposed to publishing via print or broadcast.

Digital Journalism plays a big part in Journalists society’s life. The followings are the major benefits of online journalism to them:
- It helps them to deliver news easier and faster. Journalists should pass their reports timely. Digital journalism is a helping hand on this matter. Through technology, they can post their news directly in the internet without any hassle.
- It helps them to communicate with their co-journalists well. A journalist doesn’t act his or herself only. They need connections with their co-workers who stand as their partner or a significant other to them. By the use of digital journalism, they can contact them well and much faster than before.
- No space limit for every articles. Unlike print articles in magazines, tabloids, and newspapers, journalists can write freely in digital journalism.
