Print vs. Online Products.
Let us take a little time to compare and contrast printed products with their online counterparts - such as a printed newspaper and the same newspaper's website.
The printed version is tangible and tactile. Once printed, it can't be revised by the creator, though the user can make notes on the paper. Since it's a tangle product, the user must find a way to dispose of the used product; which may be repurposed as combustion or packing material. Each newspaper will probably only be used by one or two users.
The online version is interactive: searchable and sharable. It is easily updated. The website is much more likely to be seen by users outside of the physical area of the newspaper. Many users will use the same "version" of the paper, which can generate comments and discussions.
These are completely different products, even though they share the same content.
