Magazines, like newspapers, have become an integral part of the media. Only they are much better and more interesting to read, the format is more convenient and there is the possibility of placing glossy pictures. There you can learn about fashionable outfits, about recipes and about the latest in technology, the book market.
Magazines do not come out as often as newspapers, so the efficiency fades to another plan. But there is an opportunity to cover events in more detail, conduct analytics, and take an extensive interview. Magazines in the world are very popular, with millions of copies. We will tell below about the most popular magazines in the world.
Newsweek. As the name implies, the magazine covers the news that happened over the week. It contains articles, discussions and opinions of the most authoritative experts on the events that took place. It seems that this format should be boring, because it is not for fans of fashion or entertainment. Nevertheless, the publication tries to seriously tell the news in the world, attracting smart readers. The magazine selects the most pressing issues and discusses them. In other words, it is a special and high quality newsletter paper. Also in Newsweek you can find news from the world of show business. And the magazine was founded back in 1933 by the former editor of "Time" Thomas Martin, coming out in the same format. Since 1937, the editorial board of the authoritative publication "Today" joined the magazine. The headquarters of the magazine is located in New York; there are also foreign publications in 7 languages. Despite a high circulation of 3.16 million, Newsweek is a loss-making venture. It was acquired from the Washington Post in 2009 by billionaire Sidney Harman.
Playboy. This monthly magazine has been published since 1953. It was released by Hugh Heffner, who, based on his popular brainchild, built an entire empire of adult entertainment with a publishing house at its core.

It is a lifestyle publication where sex really matters. The magazine uses beautiful girls as a way to attract. Inside, the reader is invited to see what the world might be like tomorrow.
