In media studies, media psychology, communication theory, and sociology, media influence and media effects are topics relating to mass media and media culture's effects on individual or an audience's thoughts, attitudes, and behavior.

Whether it is written, televised, or spoken, mass media reaches a large audience. Mass media is known as being one of the most significant forces in modern culture.

Sociologists divide groups into primary groups, secondary groups, in-groups, out-groups, reference groups, and networks. The cooperative, intimate, long-term, face-to-face relationships provided by primary groups are fundamental to our sense of self.

Secondary groups are larger, relatively temporary, and more anonymous, formal, and impersonal that primary groups.

Identifying and using reference groups in marketing are important because reference groups influence the attitudes, goals, aspirations, opinions, and information that determine customer standards.
