The Altering Face Of Magazines From The Pages Of Human History

What always puzzles me is the role of magazines when the world has passed through such a colorful, terrible & blazing past and

What magazines are doing now?

  1. We all think that there is always room for happenings and new findings that happens in the world. To find the fitting channel of the choice I need to get updated. There are journals, periodicals, academic journals, newsletters, fiction, and non-fiction novels, novella, poems, and magazines. 
  2. Magazines are about news, personal narratives, and opinion on the subject that interests the general public.
  3. Articles for magazines are quite frequently written by professional writers, with or without expertise, briefing discussion overview of events, with hints on the further areas to explore.
  4. Magazines use commercially understandable formats which indirectly profess that they are not for voracious readers or people who dig deep into the interesting subject.,
  5. magazines heavily depend on growing regular circulations and sponsor-hooking through eye-popping illustrations of generally known subjects.
  6. This doesn’t mean magazines or low in quality content the main point is they aren’t designed for those who plunge into serious research on the subjects they are looking after. Magazines don’t provide a bibliography for the origin of their source.
  7. If you look for research results based on data & evidence, and authenticity by footnotes or endnotes, the magazine may or may not have a clear and consistent goal relating to coverage. For a magazine, a cover story is buying front-page breaking news.
  8. Editorial, Articles, Feature Stories, Boxed Columns, Trivia, Reviews, varying range of photographs spread throughout the entire printed copy makes it a successful magazine.
  9. Style & body shopping means more for magazines, thus, it always contains attractive covers (75% of them are glamourous making use of models, the cinema industry), an urn of all eggs with a varying range of subjects, targeted to entertainment instead of engaging the readers (many times side-by-side contradictory too appear).
  10. Magazines hold a general audience by subscription, prize-winning puzzles, questionnaires, and inviting sponsors on advertising, and theme-based content regardless of the mode of publication namely Weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.
  11. The magazine holds the trapeze’s balance of text, opinion, and graphics. Thus, one marvelous thing about magazines is they are introductory about authors, political movements, new trends, cultural change, technological advancements, travel & lifestyle.
  12. To earn and sustain common people who function in a variety of fields both as employees or entrepreneurs – various genres of Literary, Travel, Food & Culture, Lifestyle, Environmental, Space, Medical, Sport, Pulp, Spiritual, Rational, Scientific, Computer, Economic, Fan, Children, Teen magazines share the commercial aspects on all subjects.
  13. The only challenge is magazines are expensive to produce though it seldom opinionates or elusively registers their original voice even in a generalized discussion.
