How do Teenagers in Bahrain Respond to Online Advertising

Mohammed M. Almossawi


In recent years, advertising has discovered a new forum: the Internet. Billboards are old-fashioned in the face of animation and live, digital streaming. The power inherent in this new advertising tool is hard to measure. And like all new things, it has yet to be perfected. The degree to which Internet advertising actually informs and influences Internet users depends on various factors, especially those that affect recall and recognition capacities.

How important is ad style, and is it more important than ad content? This study examines these key questions, among others, in an effort to understand which methods of Internet advertising make the greatest impact on the youth in Bahrain.  Results have been surprising in some ways.
