The ever growing, ever evolving role of technology in our world has impacted nearly every facet of our society. Technologys influence not only changes the way we communicate with one another, but it has shifted the way we receive and process information; we want it quickly, at any time of the day, and preferably with some anonymity. Today, many people get their up to the minute legal business news from online sources and social media platforms. In fact, more people get their news online (including online legal business news) than from more traditional sources such as print newspapers or radio.
Few people would argue with how beneficial technology can be to the society at large. Fewer still may argue that technology (in its many manifestations) can lessen the average persons attention span, too. Today, different media sources of information are competing and vying for the attention of consumers. Due to the many ways to get news, Americans are also exposed to more news than they were ten years earlier. In fact, the average time Americans spend with the news is 75 minutes per day, according to a 2010 survey. Essentially, as the minutes spent reading a newspaper or listening to a radio trickle off each year, electronic platforms are closing the gap. As more and more people adopt mobile internet access, this number will increase exponentially. From 2011 to 2012, the increase in mobile users rose from 97.3 million to 113.9 million. By 2014, mobile internet usage is expected to exceed desktop internet usage.
Online news, including legal news and legal business news, is more than just up to minute breaking headlines. Online legal business sites are comprehensive sources of opinions based research, analysis and trends, past verdict searches, and legal business networking opportunities. Legal business opportunities can include anything from directories to other attorneys, or directories to any law professional such as a court reporter.
