It might be as scary as entertaining
Virtual reality and augmented reality are a entertaining dimension in technology but there might be a frightening side too. Now let’s start to share the positive side. For example they’ll tell much more convincing and much more interesting stories because one of the biggest issues for both listeners and viewers is that getting their attention. Modern viewer currently gets the short messages and only reads the headlines. But with the new journalism method, humans will become much more concentrated.

It might cause negative consequences if it’s been used in news that contains violence. Thus, when using augmented reality and virtual reality technologies on the news, those news content should be chosen with caution. Especially this technology shouldn’t being misused and violence shouldn’t been shown to masses closely. Except that, when a lack of information occurs in the news, those details shouldn’t be given with those technologies.
