Director/a: Valls, Rosa; Redondo Sama, Gisela This thesis arises from the desire to contribute to gender violence prevention, especially in younger people. A contributing cause of this problem has been found in the existence of socialization in the desire for violence (Gómez, 2004). The media products are some of the drivers which are socializing society, linking sexual-affective relationships and violence; a socialization which is expressed through the desires of people. Nowadays teenagers show this socialization through social networks. Against this background, this thesis aims to contribute to the prevention of this socialization. It has the purpose to analyse the online interactions of Spanish teenagers (between 13 and 18 years, both included) with regards to various alternative media products, i.e. those media instruments that connect the audio and the visual and where it promotes by more than 75% the language of desire towards those characters that do not generate gender violence. The structure of this research is as follows: In the first section is described the state of the question which mainly explores the current situation of gender violence in adolescence; historical elements, sociological and educational elements which have influenced the construction of our identity and the way we understand desire and affective-sexual relationships; the impact of media products in the socialization of sexual-affective relationships and interactions among teenagers in social networks. The second section explains the research methodology used, based on the application of several research techniques: analysis of media products content, analysis of social networks content, interviews and discussion groups. Based on these techniques, the third section describes the results and an analysis of the language of desire and the absence of it, as far as it relates to violence and to non-violence, where it is furthermore observed that a correlation exists between language in products and online interactions by teenagers. In the conclusion, which is the final section, the main results are presented as well as possible future research topics in this same area of research.
