Why VIDEO is so important

If you open some major news sources in Romania:

, you will notice something like this: VIDEO / AUDIO / LIVE TEXT.

There is a lot of emphasis on interactivity (VIDEO / AUDIO / LIVE TEXT). Sure, correlation does not imply causation, but I think it’s safe to assume the following logic:

  • Video is better than
  • Slideshow, which is better than
  • Audio, which is better than
  • Image, which is better than
  • Text, which is better than
  • Nothing at all.

I use this logic a lot when deciding what should one publish online. And the news web site seem to agree with me.
