Media Misportrayal

Recently technology has become a backbone for media misportrayal and false representation. From the billions of combined hours that youth view media including; TV (and commercials), magazines, movies, social media, apps (photoshop), and ads, technology has created a judgemental portal for people to express themselves in this generation.
Our generation is commonly referred to as the generation of technology with the majority of teens owning some sort of internet based technology. This technology has provided the means of a perfect platform for the new trend of sending crude images and videos to others. This practice has impacted the way in which teens perceive their bodies, take ownership, and value personal and physical space.
