Abstract: Internet usage has grown exponentially, thanks, in part, to the increasing popularity of handheld devices, such as cell phones, tablet computers, and e-readers. Today's 21st-century children and teens are surrounded by a mediasphere of visual and textual resources. According to the Teens and the Internet report (Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project 2006, 2), over eleven million teens go online daily, compared to about seven million in 2000. Increasingly, whether it is through computers, televisions, cell phones, or gaming devices, children and teens are accessing online resources to meet their social, recreational, and informational needs.
