News at 6pm

We (online friends) were chatting about this Mashable release online today:

http://mashable.com/2011/03/15/online-versus-newspaper-news/

that claims “For the First Time, More People Get News Online Than From Newspapers”

Whilst understanding previous research and studies indicating that people can only humanly digest “so much”, I suggested the theory that the news at 6pm services were so popular for this very reason. That, until an online news service was to provide a daily summary (at a routine time) they may in fact fail for the regular every day folk who need to summary.

If you look at services like paper.li they do this now; i.e. schedule the release of my daily newspaper. Is this the answer and the trend?

Thought I’d throw it out there and see if you agree 🙂

ciao
