What do you feel makes a good magazine?
The Majority of my participants stated that a good magazine
should have the following features: Not too busy, longer, in-
depth features, lack of ‘celeb’ feel, and lack of pretention.
These were the main points my participants answered.
How often do you purchase a magazine?
The majority of my participants stated that they purchase a
magazine sometimes. Most expanded on this and stated
they rarely do because the internet is free and easily

they feel bored, and reading about issues may give them
energy. They also stated that their favourite magazine provided
clarity of facts through Celebrity news and problem pages, as

From this, I can establish that teenagers are more likely to
