Yearbooks

Have yearbooks become obsolete?  Yearbook sales have been declining in high schools and colleges around the country.  While some professionals cite the rising costs of printing, most point their finger at declining student interest.  In the past, yearbooks were so special because they were essentially your only remnant of the academic year.  With class portraits, articles, and team photos, yearbooks were collections of memories.  However, in today’s internet-centered world, we have all the photos and memories we need, and they’re all online.

Some argue that declining student interest in yearbooks can be attributed to online social networking sites.  In the past, the only way to stay in touch with former friends and classmates was by phone or mail, if you kept in touch at all.  There are always people you remember fondly in your yearbooks, but have no reason to contact.  With online social networking sites, you can keep updated and in touch without having to directly call or mail someone.  High schools and colleges should probably take note if they want to keep up on their yearbook tradition.  Perhaps they can think about creating online yearbooks to appease the internet-savvy student, while retaining a sense of nostalgia and tradition.
