e-zine - Computer Definition
(Electronic-magaZINE) A magazine distributed to users via e-mail or the Web. Pronounced "ee-zeen," it may be an electronic counterpart to a print subscription or be the only publishing method. No matter whether it is free or paid, e-zines require users to sign in as members. If text only, the e-zine is an "e-newsletter." If published on a Web site, it is a "Webzine," while "zine" refers to all forms. Zines and Blogs The difference between zines and blogs is that zine publishers own their subscriber list, whereas blog publishers have no idea who reads their postings unless they provide a feedback form and readers respond. In addition, ads on e-zines are generally acceptable, but not on blogs, which are expected to be personal opinions without marketing and much less formal. See blog.
