David Rojo is a man from Merida who in these times of technology decided to find information in the digital world and in the midst of that Internet world, for three years, he began to interact on the news pages, including that of Últimas Noticias.
He is a lover of social networks and is always up to date with the information that is disseminated by different technological means.
Rojo points out that he prefers to check the website of Últimas Noticias in the morning, because he considers it "quite complete because it covers multiple topics," explained the Internet user.
It considers it positive that the opinion of analysts, such as Maryclen Stelling, Luis Brito García, Julio Escalona or Vladimir Acosta is published by this medium, said Rojo
This man from Merida pointed out that the crisis situation in Venezuela is complex, therefore, it is understandable that cultural life has decreased by a large percentage; however, information on the cultural theme is present, although centered on the capital region.
The newspaper in digital version presents different sections of interest to the general public, in their opinion. The choice of the communities is considered attractive, given the non-circulation of paper or physical newspapers in the state of Mérida. "It is an alternative to find regional news."
Another link of interest is that of the Book where there are interesting reviews of literature, said the Internet user.
The links for Instagram, WhatsApp or Facebook are an option that helps to share information with other people or institutions that use these social networks.
He emphasizes that in the Specials section “I manage to find world-trending topics, which is why it has been helpful to broaden my vision of the events that are in vogue. For this reason, it would be interesting to see more works from the interior of the country, of the cultural work of the regions, here the cultural manifestations of the country could be broadly registered, ”he said.
Rojo said that the digital format offers different options such as a photo report, infographics, and short videos. "These formats enrich the viewer's senses creating a bond of empathy for national identity, such as observing a good photograph of the festival in honor of San Isidro from the residents of Lagunillas, Los Giros de San Rafael de Mucuchíes, in Rangel listening to a chimbagle from Palmarito, Los Indios Copes from the town of La Azulita ”.
It proposes to have a regional correspondent for traditional manifestations that liaise with institutions such as the House of Cultural Diversity. “Traditional cultural manifestations have a history to tell, that is, from how it was born, why, the clothing that is used, the musicalization. There are places where the cultists make their musical instruments, also their clothing, there are locals who are masters of how to make a specific hat to participate in the demonstrations. There are many details to write stories that the reader would fall in love with ”, explained Rojo.
He notes that in a projection of cultural and traditional manifestations in the state of Mérida there would be around one hundred. "This is important material for Venezuelans and the world," says this man from Merida who likes cultural information.
He says that at first he only reviewed the headlines, “since they are quite striking, then I investigated more in their sections and articles.
Rojo expressed that the Regional Pulse session is of interest because the Internet user has information on the states of the country in the same space.
"It is news that gives us an overview of the events that occur and that are part of the Venezuelan reality," explained Rojo.
He suggested that a window to interact should be presented through a dialog.
