Our analog world falls further behind

Numbers for the analog leftovers in life…..to nobody’s surprise:

Music:
Sales last year were down 21% from their peak in 1999

Television
:
Network TV’s audience share has fallen by a third since 1985

Radio
:
Listenership is at a 27-year low

Newspapers
:
Circulation peaked in 1987, and the decline is accelerating

Magazines
:
Total circulation peaked in 2000 and is now back to 1994 levels
Books:
Sales growth is lagging the economy as whole

These numbers will only continue to fall in a new business economy driven by dynamic data.  Get used to it.
