About the Project

 

The media space has become part of our lives since the 2000s, but especially in the lives of young people born practically in the digital age. The increasing popularity of online media and social media channels have revolutionized the way that society, now perceived as global, communicates, interacts and shares information and opinions. Given this aspect, in addition to the positive aspects of the media channels, we must be aware of the negative effects that these can have on us, as individuals, but also as a society.
