Media Consumption Patterns of Indian Youth

 

Many researches have been conducted towards exploring the influence of media on the attitude and behavior of youth in India; media use patterns among the youth in terms of their media preferences. According to a survey on needs of the youth undertaken in six states of India in 2006-2007, substantial proportions of youth were exposed to the media.1

Akhila Vasan in her working paper titled, Films and TV: Viewing patterns and influence on behaviours of college students,2 presented findings from a study intended to address what is known about the influence of the media on the youth.
