Another week another story to tell! As the polling for the 2012 National General Elections come to an end and counting commences, we wish and pray for the best still! Anyway I'm not here to talk about the Elections as I'm not really into the political game so I'll leave it there.
So what are we discussing today, well I want to discuss the websites of all media organizations in the country and how I as a blogger find using these sites!
I can tell you all right now that the new EMTV website is the best I've seen by far from any of the media websites in PNG. Congratulations to the team who developed the website! It is so easy to use and the wow factor is the amount of information one can obtain from the website. It is modern with links not only to PNG sites and EMTV programs but Internationally too.
In earlier posts I've discussed this and why media organizations in the country should have an updated website and/or create a facebook account which can be updated daily or regularly. I was in Kiunga and Tabubil recently and while on the Mighty Fly River, the only access to the rest of the world was my mobile phone. And with my mobile phone, I was kept up beat with the latest political games played in Port Moresby. I was able to access the NBC facebook page and the National newspaper's sites.
That was very exceptional by these two media outlets and now that EMTV has come on board with a new look website, I can't wait to really experience using it when you really need too when your in the middle of nowhere. And to watch the streaming of the news on your mobile phone too, that is one thing to look forward too.
Great work on a great website and as an observer and critic, I wish the EMTV team the best in the coming years as we all trive to be in the media race to reach and inform as many people as posible in a professional manner. I encourage the EMTV news team to continue to push for the best as now their tiring efforts of gathering news will be published and streamed online to PNG and the rest of the world.
I am a big advocate for standard in the media industry and ways we as a fraternity can move forward into the future. I am overwhelmed just browsing through the EMTV website and looking forward to the time when all media organizations will have updated websites.
EMTV has surely set the standard with its latest website update and I would like to see the National Newspaper follow suite with a much fresher look to the website and also existing websites like the Post Courier, NBC and PNGFM all upgraded to a modern much fresher looks with easy to accees and user friendly sites.
Congratulations to EMTV again and keep up the good work!
