Lev-On, Azi, and Neriya-Ben Shahar, Rivka. 2012. To browse or not to browse: Perceptions of the danger of the Internet by ultra-orthodox Jewish women. In New Media and Intercultural Communication, eds. Pauline Hope Cheong, Judith N. Martin and Leah Macfadyen, pp. 223-236. New York: Peter Lang.

The study looks at Jewish ultra-Orthodox women who use modern technologies, for purposes that are illegitimate in their community. Subjects’ perceived impacts of the Internet on self and others are analyzed, demonstrating a “third-person effect” in regards to the perceived dangers originating from the Internet. The correlations and possible implications of the “third-person effect” are discussed.
