Introduction. The important and accelerated advances experimented in recent years by information and communication technologies have begun to influence, in a very big way, the world press. This can be seen for instance in the fact that traditional national newspapers limit themselves, mostly, to simply making transcripts of their printed versions in the Net, disregarding the characteristics and demands of a media like Internet. Objective. To compare the printed and online versions of the main colombian newspapers. Materials and methods. A comparative analysis is made between the printed and the online versions of five of the main Colombian newspapers, from the perspective of the traditional journalistic composition and related to the modern digital composition theories. Results. Digital journalism in Colombia is almost inexistent; besides, there is a general lack of knowledge concerning the characteristics and possibilities offered by a mass media like Internet. Conclusion. In Colombia, digital journalism is still far from achieving an important development.
