Media Psychology.

Media Psychology seeks to understand how media as a factor in the growing use of technology impacts how people perceive, interpret, respond, and interact in a media rich world.

"The \\'media\\' in Media Psychology means \\'mediated experience\\' not any single kind of media or technology. In our globally net-worked world, it is impossible to have a mediated experience without technology. It is equally impossible for technology to have value without facilitating a human goal, whether that is social connection or content and information distribution."
