CMCH Synopsis: In 2000 and 2005, researchers gave a survey to Internet users between the ages of 10 and 17. They wanted to see whether there were any changes in the five year span in how often teens experienced unwanted sexual solicitation, harassment, and unintended exposure to pornography for Internet users. They found that only White, non-Hispanic participants, and those living in higher-income households experienced a decline in unwanted Internet experiences. They suggest focusing educational outreach about this issue on minority and less-affluent households. Center on Media and Child Health
