After reading online novels for so many years, I am very interested in the development of online novels, and have always wanted to make a summary. Recently I chatted with my friends and mentioned the development process of online novels. In fact, it has only been 20 years since the emergence of online novels. I divided the development of online novels into 4 periods. Let's take a look!
1. The Dark Iron Period The first stage of the development of online novels is the "Black Iron Period". According to my classification, this stage should be in the five or six years from 2000 to 2005. Because during this period, the Internet has just developed, and Internet novels have also appeared in people’s lives along with the Internet. However, because the Internet has not been really popularized, the number of Internet novels is still very small, and basically only Thousands to tens of thousands. In the "black iron age" of the development of online novels, online novels, like the Internet itself, have just emerged and are still a very novel thing. At this time, only a few people who are able to read online novels are able to access the Internet. The Internet is unfamiliar to many people, so network novels based on the Internet are naturally even more unfamiliar to people. At this time, most of the online writers writing online novels are based on interest. Many people have read the traditional martial arts novels and have a bunch of ideas in their minds. Satisfy your own creative desire. At this time, online novels are far from industrialization, let alone making money. The development of online novels has just had a short start.
2. The second stage of the development of online novels in the Bronze Age is the "Bronze Age". According to my classification, this stage should be from 2006 to 2010. In these four to five years, the Internet has gradually become popular. It has also become popular. Many people already have the habit of reading online novels. However, the industry chain of online novels has just formed, mainly due to the emergence of online novel rewards and subscription payment models. With the emergence of the payment model of websites, some novel authors have begun to specialize in online novel creation. After all, they can obtain a certain amount of income through online novel creation. It was during this period that online novels began to develop to a certain extent. A group of early writers grew into mature online writers, and online novel writing showed a momentum of vigorous development.
3. The third stage of the development of online novels in the Silver Age is the "Silver Age". According to my classification, this stage should be from 2011 to 2016. During these five or six years, online novels have withstood piracy. The pressure of novel sites. Although a large number of readers are still reading pirated novels, the industry chain of online novels has gradually matured, especially the emergence of a large number of genuine novel websites, making the copyright protection of online novels more important. And because of copyright infringement, pirated novel websites have also been hit to a certain extent, so the hindrance of pirated novel websites to the development of online novels is gradually decreasing. At this time, as a large number of online writers became famous, more people began to join the ranks of online novel creation with the goal of becoming online writers, and the number of online novels showed a geometric increase.
4. The fourth stage of the development of online novels in the golden age, which is the current stage, I call it the "golden age". This stage has been from 2017 to the present. Due to the rapid development of the Internet, especially the rise of smart phones, the Internet has been promoted. The development of novels on the wireless side. In the golden age, the industrialization of online novels has been fully mature, especially the full copyright operation of online novels, which benefits online writers. Pirated novel sites have been hit hard, because copyright awareness has gradually taken root in the hearts of the people. With the closure of a large number of pirated novel sites, more legitimate literary sites have also sprung up, and online novels have truly ushered in a booming development. Golden age.
Summary: The above are the four stages of the development of online novels, which are divided into the Black Iron Period, the Bronze Period, the Silver Period and the Golden Period. Of course, these are my personal opinions. I also ask my friends for advice.
