News Website Treatment• Name: Teens-News-Of-The-Aloud-Cloud!• Target audience: my target audience are boys and girls around the ages of 12 – 16 yrs old, because some people around those ages dont like to watch or read about adult news, like politics because they find it boring, so by having news suited to those ages would stop teens thinking that all news is boring. I would like to aim it at the teenagers that wouldn’t really chose to read the news because they are to busy on Facebook or BBM or just think the news is for adults and is too boring and unsuited to teenagers. I would make it suit my target audience by making different sections of the website according to different types of news. Some teenagers but not all like news about politics and “hard news” where as the majority like “soft news” like gossip and sport. Also by cutting news stories down and getting to the point in a report, the people who are reading the news wouldnt get bored by reading loads of writing about one news story, by including more pictures and videos then teenagers would be more interested as this generation of kids and teenagers are the digital generation and like visual things.• Content focus: I will focus on a range of stories, from gossip to politics, each in different sections of the website under “hard news, soft news” then under these categories would be a range of news stories groups, e.g. Sport would be under soft news with gossip, and politics would be under hard news with war and conflict. There would be around the same amount of soft news then hard news but in most cases soft news would be dominant on my website because more teenagers like soft news but thats not all.
