Some unique aspects of online journalism

1. Audience Control
The audience has greater control over the information it wants.

2. Nonlinear
Stories do not have to follow a predetermined order. They can be structured to allow users to experience it as they wish.

3. Storage and retrieval
Ability to link to public records, databases, archives, and additional information.

4. Unlimited Space
Unlike print or broadcast which is limited by space and time, the web is not constrained by temporal boundaries.

5. Immediacy
The Internet allow information to be published almost instantaneously.

6. Multimedia
The integration of text, photos, audio, video, and graphics to tell a story or provide information.

7. Interactivity and User-Generated Content
The user participates in the news process and content creation.



About Nick DiUlio

My name is Nick DiUlio, a freelance writer and editor from New Jersey. I have been passionate about the craft of writing since I was old enough to spell, and this love has led to a successful career in journalism and creative nonfiction. As a freelancer, I have covered a wide range of topics and personalities, as my published work has focused on everything from profiles of artists and important political figures to hard-news stories with both national and local appeal; from restaurant and beverage reviews to tips on fashion and finance; from health and wellness pieces to celebrity Q&A’s. My work has appeared in several local, regional and national publications—both in print and online—including Philadelphia Magazine,, Miller-McCune, New Jersey Monthly, Eating Well, and Delaware Today. Additionally, I am the South Jersey Bureau Chief for New Jersey Monthly and an adjunct journalism professor at Rowan University. To be sure, the broadness of my body of work seems only to be matched by my boundless interest in almost every subject imaginable (except Warren Zevon). Check out some of my most recently published work here.
