Internet materials play a significant role in displaying information on various platforms. The data may be informed by pictures, figures or even figures. There are different types of illumination that are applied with the aim of enhancing the appearance of the displayed information and also making it easier for the readers to go through the displayed data. Their primary role is to design the provided data to capture the attention of the users (Peter & Valkenburg, 2015).
Looking at the weekly topic like “If ADHD Is “Not Real,” Why Do So Many Kids Struggle? The internet features play a significant role in enhancing the appearance of this topic. For instance, the whole issue has been presented in bold to make it conspicuous. This is to attract the attention of any person interested in reading the article and also those who may not need it, but the appearance of the title tends to be more appealing, making them read. The capitalising style applied to the topic even enhances its appearance making it more attractive. There is also a picture of a kid who seems to be straining to understand what he is reading, with his mother beside her, who appears to be concerned about his studies. This photograph will enable a person who even doesn’t know how to read to understand or also have a clue of what the content may be containing.
Another weekly topic is Seize the Day, Seed Tomorrow: Conversation with parents. This article advises the youth to utilise their day productively to make their future better, but with the help of their parents (Muusses et al., 2015). In illustrating this, there is an attachment of a small picture on this topic, which shows two young ones and probably with their dad taking a selfie. They are likely having a good time together. This picture has been used to back up the topic, which encourages kids to converse with their parents which is essential in their living. The subject has also been separated into two parts with the use of a full colon to show that the two things are independent of each other.
Another news highlight is about science, with the topic “Elderly people grow as many new brain cells as young, study finds”. This topic has been whitened in a different colour which is white, to make it more visible. There is also a small topic placed at the top of the headline with the word SCIENCE, which has a red background. This has been used to notify the readers that the issue being reviewed is about scientific and not any other subject. There is also a picture attached, which appears to be in the darkness, although it is well visible (Johnson 2016). This enables one who doesn’t even have an idea about the brain to understand that the represented organ is found in the body.
In general, the internet aids in explaining the content found in the article by use of pictures, which in most cases are used as backs up of the topic given. In other cases, the images provided may be used in playing the role of sarcasm about the discussed idea. At times animations are used instead of real pictures in situations where using the photos of the actual person might make them feel uncomfortable with it. There is also the aspect of italicizing the letters to make them appear different from other words. This is used in cases where the emphasis is needed to be placed on a specific thing which is found in the highlight. In most cases, italicisation is used in naming the author of the article right beneath the main topic.
