People Magazine Online
To give you a taste of what an online magazine is all about, let’s look at one of the more popular online magazines on CompuServe: People Magazine Online. When you GO PEOPLE, you’re presented with an online table of contents like the one shown in this figure.
From here you can either click a button or click a feature in the scrolling list. The scrolling menu on the left part of the screen is where you find the daily news from People. That’s right, CompuServe’s online People actually spills the
entertainment news before it hits the magazine stand! just double-click an article to read it on your computer screen.
And that’s what an online magazine is all about—articles and pictures from the printed issue, plus forums, feedback, and the most recent news. You might be wondering if online magazines will ever replace the print rags. Probably not. After all, you can’t roll up an online magazine and take it with you to the beach. But, for offering online access to current information, online magazines are great.
