Consolidation of Cyberjournalism: Progress and Regressions of 20 Years of History

Lizy Navarro Zamora


This article is about the evolution of online media in the past 20 years on the Internet considering the following basic features: hypertext, globalization, instantaneity, multimedia convergence, globalization, updating, digital newspaper and magazine libraries, personalization, interactivity. The result we found is a strong disparity between the online media in developed countries compared to the online media in Latin American countries. Although all elements have grown, unfortunately there has been a very limited development in the element of interactivity. This feature is part of the impact and importance of the Information and Communication Technologies (TIC’S). A quantitative methodology based on content analysis and morphological analysis developed in 2000 and 2014 was applied.
