Abstract and Keywords

Media psychologists have studied the impacts of media portrayals for decades. This body of research is rich in both theory and data. Although we know a great deal about traditional media like television, the platforms and devices available to children and adolescents to view and interact with today are far beyond those we studied only a few years ago (see Chapter 2). The media landscape is rapidly changing, and this chapter looks at some of the effects of the Internet and these newer technologies on riskrelated behaviors for these audiences. The effects of exposure to violence, sex, food marketing, and the concerns of cyberbullying and sexual exploitation are examined within the context of children and adolescents’ increasing move away from traditional media platforms. This is emerging and ongoing research and offers both theoretical and empirical opportunities for the future of media psychology.

Keywords: advergames and internet marketing, cyberbullying, Internet and media violence, new media use, social networking sites
