I’m curious to learn of everyone’s media consumption preferences and habits.*
From which channels/platforms do you get most of your news?
Which publications and why?
Which outlets are you obsessed with?
What’s your routine/system if you have any?
What content are you willing to pay for?
In 2014, media outlets said the homepage was dead because individuals get their content through channels like email and social media, but I personally believe if we love a particular website enough, we’ll visit the homepage almost every day to make sure we’re not missing anything and eager to consume it as much as possible…and then start following that outlet on all channels.
Regardless, I think it’s an interesting exercise to reflect on where we get our news and also learn how others get theirs.
*As a side note, I completed my graduate project at NYU on email newsletters, which researchers say is the best way to connect with millennials. I’m fascinated by news consumption preferences/habits. I’ll start listing my answers below.
