Introduction

Multimedia Essay There are many tabloid and broadsheet newspapers but now however there are online versions of these popular papers. Two examples, one tabloid and one broadsheet, are The Mirror and The Guardian. When newspapers first came out there were no online versions as the Internet was not invented yet, and therefore was a very basic but effective form of communication. Times move on and therefore the online versions were invented, as were the spoken versions for the deaf. It is now a more effective form of communication and attracts millions of people worldwide.

The story types in The Mirror are generally aimed to a younger generation with more entertainment stories and doesn't go as in-depth to the more political and world event. While the Guardian aims towards a more mature generation featuring more political stories. The visual impact is definitely more powerful on The Mirror online with a stronger variety of colour used.
