Digital Magazines 2008
Shift in Technology, Shift in Psychology
Just a few years ago, industry observers werenâ€™t sure what to make of digital magazines. They were viewed by many as a technology that combined elements of print and online in counterintuitive ways, and seemed to be a means for publishers and readers alike to cling to the familiarity of print. But a funny thing happened. Adoption of the digital-magazine format kept growing. In fact, it skyrocketed (though penetration typically reaches about 10-15 percent or so of a magazineâ€™s circ). All the while, the technical capabilities vastly improved. What once was used as a cost-saving device for international distribution, or as a refuge for declining print magazines, has now emerged as an intriguing hybridâ€”combining elements of print and online in interesting and useful ways. This supplement explores the underpinnings of that shift and how magazine publishers are leveraging digital editions in new and profitable ways.
