Today, the internet has become the most important information source for those who use the internet. In 2012, the internet shared the same spot as television, but today the internet has passed this and has on average 3.9 points on a scale where 1 the medium is not important at all and 5 means that it is very important as an information source. TV on average has 3.6 and personal contacts are judged to be the most important (4.2).
As a news source, however, television was still the most important in 2013 with an average of 3.6 against the internet’s 3.4. To be a source of information is a broader concept and includes much more than the news.
