How it flows: The Information cycle
Information cycle shows how news, invention or discovery flows around in the different sources so when information or news flows; it first appears on the TV or the radio then to newspapers and magazines, academic journals, books and to reference books and encyclopedia.
How it flows digitally:
With rise of digital consumption and fall of print mediums, more and more media companies are now fully focused on harnessing the power of digitization, whether its social media platforms or blogs, however social media platforms has empowered people to be a media of themselves by their posts, tweets, videos, and articles, so to translate information cycle into bits, information starts with tweets and blogs and then media blogs and websites then to academic websites and eBooks and then to Wikipedia (the digital encyclopedia)

Information cycle and level of information:
Just like aged wine, the more time an information content spends, the more sophisticated it becomes, so on the same day it appears on the internet or TV but a day spends, and the editor spends time in cultivating the story with more research data later in writing journals, books and encyclopedia more and more time and research spends which therefore raised the sophistication of the information content.
