PAGE or POST?

More page suggestions below description …

Considering the structure of digital news websites, the news articles that are published in a continuous timeline are known as posts. Each post represents one article with a date and a time stamp. However, there is another type of display on digital news websites known as a page. You are reading a page right now. Pages are information pages with no chronological connection. Pages are usually information web pages that feature general information, topics, directories, lists, photo galleries, products or services. For example, a specific weather report for a particular day is considered a news article about the weather for that day. That weather article is a post, which could be a weather alert or weather forecast for a specific day and a short forecast period, or a news report of a weather event that occurred (tornado, ice storm, flooding, etc). A weather radar page or a weather page is usually not limited to information about a specific date unless there is a page written about a significant historical weather event

(e.g., The January 1967 Blizzard — Arlingtoncardinal.com/january1967blizzard).

The weather radar page doesn’t include archived information, but it provides dynamic weather radar images, links to resources, and links to related topics. THE CARDINAL NEWS radar page and weather page have simple web addresses …

Arlingtoncardinal.com/radar

Arlingtoncardinal.com/weather

The web address demonstrates one of the major differences between a post and a page. CARDINAL NEWS posts usually have long web addresses (URLs) that might include the date or part of the date the article was published or posted.

Cardinal News web addresses for pages usually conveniently have one word or a short string of up to three words. The important thing to remember is that you can’t have spaces in the web address, so if there are three words, they are strung together — without spaces — into one word. For example, the web address for the CARDINAL NEWS Illinois State Police page is …

Arlingtoncardinal.com/IllinosStatePolice

FOMO, BROWSING, SEARCHING, or PAGING?

CARDINAL NEWS offers four ways to find information: FOMO, Browsing, Searching or Paging. Each method has its own special usefulness that is beyond the occasional one-to-one share or message from a family member or friend.

FOMO. Many people read news articles that are fed to them on Facebook or Twitter. Fear Of Missing Out is all about using a news feed (usually Facebook or Twitter) in an effort to avoid missing news that you think you need to know, and perhaps includes the fear or concern of missing the ongoing social commentary. The news version of FOMO is similar to the teen version of social media: Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO) — the anxiety stemming from the belief that others might be having fun while the teen is missing out on the fun, or missing social interaction. Back to the news version of FOMO: CARDINAL NEWS, like other news services, shares articles to Facebook and Twitter with all the pluses and minuses of social media. Sometimes comments are beneficial, and sometimes they are a mess of sniping ridicule or harassment. For those of you that want to avoid the rat race (skip the 24-hour feeds and continual interruptions), you might mix in the next three forms of accessing news — Browsing, Searching, and Paging.

Browsing. Here is the news gathering method for people that prefer to browse the front page of news sites, and choose to read articles when convenient. The feed method can be a stressful because feeds can be addicting and article appearances may be fleeting. Readers might get a notice to read an article that is interesting, but later in the day that article might be gone or hard to find. Browsing a news site or social media timeline is a little more “comfortable” and might even involve a better ‘quality of life’ compared to the anxiety of catching every significant news story on a feed. If you can’t find an article on the front page of news site or the timeline of a Facebook page or Twitter account, searching is the next step.

Searching. Searching within a website or searching on Google, Bing, Facebook, or Twitter are the most common methods of searching for news. Readers can search a person’s name, a topic, etc. Quotations can be helpful to narrow the search results. CARDINAL NEWS and Google allow quotation marks to be used around words in the search box to help improve or narrow search results.

Paging. CARDINAL NEWS recommends paging, which involves direct, convenient addressing to get to specific type of information. Paging doesn’t necessarily help readers find news articles, but helps find information topics. The more a reader uses CARDINAL NEWS, the more that reader understands how to use pages to find information or access regular helpful information, such as weather radar, traffic, store hours and more [SUGGESTION: Save multiple, frequently used pages to your HOME SCREEN.

A PAGE JUST FOR YOU?

If there is an information page that you would like CARDINAL NEWS to feature, you can suggest one. CARDINAL NEWS recommends readers submit suggestions for pages that might be useful. Your high school? Your favorite store? Your workplace? Your community? Your information page could be designed just for you while keeping your name private. An information page can work like a dashboard, including a map, important locations nearby, and other resources that relate to the main topic of the page. The page could include information related to tasks or issues that you encounter frequently or daily that are related to the main topic of the page.
