This experimental study examined the impact of media multitasking on the perceived irritation towards TV advertising. The moderating role of media type and the mediating role of self-esteem were tested. The results indicated a decrease of state self-esteem while media multitasking, which in turn resulted into lower irritation towards TV advertising. However, this was only the case for the participants using a social network site (Facebook), but not for the ones using a traditional media type (online news article) while watching TV.
