The Impact of Digital Technologies and Services on Consumer Behaviour – Insights from Two Research Projects 


Digital technologies and services are widely used by adolescents, which has raised concerns about whether young people's heavy use of these technologies is beneficial or harmful. Many of the opportunities offered by digital technologies, for example for recreation, learning, expressing oneself, or socializing, are offset by obvious drawbacks, or overuse of technologies or decreased tsk performance due to heavy distractions. Research has provided evidence that young people can be particularly vulnerable to such powerful influences in online environments. This presentation will offer insights from two research projects on the impact of digital technologies and services with regard to (i) different forms of adolescents’ well-being and (ii) young peoples task performance in relation to digital sound distractions.
