Too much news?

Is there such a thing as too much news? No longer confined to the print cycle, we are experiencing news consumption at a rate faster than ever before. Newsrooms operate 24 hours a day and consumers are hungry for more news every minute. This begs the question-are we promoting a news saturated world where we thirst for information that we would otherwise be quite happy not knowing, just because we can?

The majority of news consumers own a smart phone or similar device from which they read the news. Apps for news agencies are available for round-the-clock reading and news websites are updated on a rolling basis. The way we consume news is constantly evolving and we have more access than ever – what are we doing with our extensive knowledge of current affairs? Does the immediate accessibility mean we are less inclined to react?

How have apps changed your news consumption?
