Why High School Yearbooks Will Endure the Social Media Revolution
While many newspapers and magazines struggle to survive the digital revolution, high school yearbooks seem to continually avoid falling prey to online innovations. With a recipe that hasn’t changed much over the years, high school yearbooks appear to be in an exclusive ‘printing’ league of their own.
Many have argued that high school yearbooks will eventually be replaced by digital media conventions such as online directories and even CD-ROM yearbooks, but students, teachers and parents seem to disagree. According to high school yearbook publishers, part of the allure of the annual high school yearbook are the memories that students know they can literally hold on to forever.
“Long after students graduate, their high school yearbook is the only physical reminder of these wonder years,” explains Elias Jo, President of Entourage Yearbooks, “while the Internet is always changing, coming and going, students feel confident that their high school yearbook will always be there.”
Entourage Yearbooks says that 100% of the schools they serve are continuing with the production of their annual school yearbook and not one of them has any intentions of going digital. High school students who spoke with Entourage Yearbooks about going digital say that while they enjoy social networking sites, they prefer a hardcopy of their school yearbook because it marks their rite of passage with a tangible record.
“Facebook and Twitter may go away,” says Jo, “but a yearbook will always be there. They’ll still be around long after hard drives crash and when one technology displaces another.”
