Internet: has its advent ended the long-form journalism?

The Internet has facilitated communication and interaction between people. It is evident that the Internet has created a platform where news are more reachable. It has consequently affected the presence of long-form journalism.

Long-form journalism is the form of journalism that concentrates in long articles, with larger content. This can be narrative journalism. Nowadays, this form of journalism is less present.  Short article replaces now long ones, as for example social media posts and blogs.

Many people are still attached to longer articles.  They are able to access blogs or websites which share long articles. For instance BuzzFeed, a media company, has expanded its focus into long-form journalism and reportage. This might suggest that the differentiation of content created by the Internet did not end long-form journalism.
