It is virtually impossible for a reader to quickly grasp most print & digital content
Caused by too much focus by print & digital authors being storytellers not signifiers.
Who has time to read long articles of endless subhead-less content ?
Armed with pen, scanning eyes, and key word vigilance, readers dig & focus.
Most magazine & newspaper articles go on & on with no eye help for the reader.
Story telling as such maybe in peril is format of content does not change
People want to immediately know why the content was composed & published.
Posting content using So -So What format captures why content composed & action taken.
There appears to be no trade or consumer media that has experimented with digested content format.
No one has this truly figured out content publishing –But consultants who state the is not late.
