Advertisements are influencing us in a negative way.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
It is often argued that some of the methods have been employed by the advertisement industry to promote certain products are totally unethical. This essay totally agrees with this viewpoint because of the reasons elucidated in forthcoming paragraphs.
Firstly, We are often bombarded with thousands of promotional messages or emails every day. These advert companies send messages and emails without figuring out whether receiver needs that product they are advertising or not. Receiving a message or an email after every few seconds often disturb people and distract them from the task they are doing at that time. Personally, I often experience this problem in my daily life, and I have to trash my email inbox filled with commercial ads every few days. Likewise every day I delete a bunch of messages on my phone to free up space.
Secondly, the content adverts contain is also a debatable issue. Some commercials, especially on TV, consist of adult content, and they advertise that on sports channels, which are also watched by children under the age of 18. For instance, the advertisement of condom is frequently telecasted on TV without considering the fact that children also watch those channels. They only do so with the sole purpose of augmenting sales by advertising their products without considering the deleterious effects of this has on the public.
In conclusion, some of the techniques used for promoting products are totally annoying and unacceptable because of the reasons explained above. It is predicted that in the future, we will see some new legislation to curb problems caused by the advertisement industry.
