Extinction? Say it ain’t so…

I came across something interesting the other day. And yes, it was on the internet. It was posted in 2014 “When Will Newspapers Become Extinct?” Curious, I couldn’t not not click.

That prediction comes from The Future Exploration Network’s research on the future of media. According to the research, newspapers as we know them will be extinct across the entire globe by 2040.

By 2025, they predict newspapers will be extinct in nearly 20 countries around the world:

2017: United States
2019: United Kingdom and Iceland
2020: Canada and Norway
2021: Finland, Singapore, and Greenland
2022: Australia and Hong Kong
2023: Denmark
2024: New Zealand, Spain, Czech, and Taiwan
2025: Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland
