Quite dissapointed in SG magazine content...
With all the available sites online available to get beauty information from, I admit to still being someone who likes having the glossies of print magazines to look at. However, with what I saw recently in the local magazines, I'm starting to have my doubts. Just take a look at the recent June issues of Cleo, Harper’s Bazaar and Singapore Women’s Weekly which all had mini magazines.
Notice how the cover pages seemingly focus on different topics (plus the fact that each of these magazines is supposed to be targeted at different demographics of women)
The shock for me came when I noticed that the first few pages of the mini-mags were all the same…and extended ALL the way through! All they did was change the cover page, but otherwise the content was EXACTLY the same.
Apart from the cover page, the editor’s note was different…I know all three magazines are owned by the same publishing house, but this is a bit much. Whatever happened to editorial integrity? I can imagine pulling some similar content, but a blatant cover to cover?
