My language was future-tense, and it did accurately predict the demise of the Independent print version.

Interesting to see whether or not online revenue is making up for plummeting print sales.

I tend to read the Mail Online and the Guardian sites in the morning, the former constantly recycling articles and the latter constantly begging me for handouts.

Some additional figures released by Future (rather than ABC) on their website. They’re claiming to advertisers the following circulations:

EDGE: 16,000
RetroGamer: 26,120
GamesMaster: 19,000

GamesTM: 28,928 (readership; circulation still undisclosed)

So on this basis, RetroGamer is now Future’s best selling videogames magazine, which begs the question why you wouldn’t officially audit it. Big increases supposedly by GamesMaster over the 2014 audit as well.

:o ... I wonder why Edge would quote them? Could the numbers be "readership" rather than "sold copies"?

I would be surprised if Retro Gamer and gamesTM held that much of a lead over Edge; although they deserve to, in my opinion!

Mail Online's viewership has fallen by a fifth in the past year

https://www.pressgazette.co.uk/national ... september/

Mail Online has seen its audience fall by nearly a fifth year-on-year to more than 11.4m, according to new ABC figures.

The UK’s largest news website recorded a 19 per cent drop in the number of daily average unique browsers on its website in September, compared with the same month last year.

News websites audited by ABC all fell last month, including The Sun, Reach (comprising the Mirror, Express and Star titles) and Mail stablemate Metro.

I wonder if that's due to the changes at Facebook.

I think so. A lot were hit by the Facebook changes.

I get my morning news through the Google News app on my phone, so I don't know whether clicks on there count as hits.

The real news here is the % decline with Mail being the heaviest.
