    Abstract

    In recent years, the Australian government, corporations and youth-serving organisations have made substantial investments in mainstream traditional and social media campaigns targeting the online risks facing young people, with the result that there is a plethora of information available to young people about
    the risks and potentially harmful consequences of engaging online.
    With online safety community awareness strategies and media campaigns reportedly reaching saturation point in Australia, it is crucial that the sector now
    evaluate the long-term impacts of this awarenesss raising.
