Advertising: Is it good or bad?
May 6, 2008

In the era of globalization, the advertising industry has become a dominant symbol.
We are exposed to advertising on a daily basis. Has advertising increased so much that we are no longer given the choice of what we consume? Or has advertising allowed us to learn and be exposed to make informed choices?

I think that we are capable of doing really good choices without having recourse to advertising. We, as consumers in this era, have the feeling that we are the target of companies and organizations which aim to pluck out more and more money on daily basis. Advertizing can never be objective for the simple reason that it's ruled by the laws of marketing. what is really aching is the use of "pretty half naked women" as a means of attracting attention for the sake of selling products. I find this a cheap way to sell a product, or to convey an information. calling people home for the sake of advertising a product or trying to sell it is a stupid thing too. one has to be really creative, to use imagination to its extreme fullest capabilities in order to advertise. smile

I personaly think that advertisments are great because although many see them as a negative, I see the positives.

Firstly, everyone talks about how the media is a negative influence on children. I think that because this occurs, it allows for people to think and teach others critically about what they view on a daily basis.

Also, because of 'negative' ads, it has inspired many to create positive ads such as the Dove beauty campaign.

Advertising on internet is almost a necessity for modern businesses, especially for those who are into small business outside of their local community.As we are already ware about the fact that advertising through internet reached to a mass group pf targeted audience serving as the most important advantage but on the other hand the disadvantage that it hold on to is that your materials are easily available for anyone in the world to copy.

I think advertising itself isn't necessarily bad. Like any form of media, however, a lot of advertisers tend to exploit real events and stereotypes just so they can turn a profit.

The change in the way we consume media (from newspapers and television to the internet) is forcing the advertising industry to rethink their approach. Now, people can selectively block out advertising. So they're coming up with ways to tell compelling stories, engage with their audience, and successfully sell their product.

For example, Dove's Real Beauty campaign is getting both praise and criticism. Some people think it promotes a healthy sense of body image; while others feel like it panders to the stereotype that women have poor self-esteem.

Good, if contains benefits for the planet (environment and creatures). Otherwise, it may be considered bad.

I don't think advertising is a bad thing to go with. It is considered to be the one of the most significant medium for approaching the target audiences, especially it does works among people who are not literate especially.

But we witness cigarettes and some unhealthy food stuff is advertised and the target audience is the youth.

Every single things has got a good & bad effect on us, like advertising too which we sometimes find very interfering in our lifestyle, as we respond buying to any required things through advertisements only, but it cannot be ignored at all,if there wouldn't be any advertisement then can we ever know launch of a product as well its usage, apart from enlightening people its gives the competitive edge over other product that we may find good for us. Hence in today's world advertisement is playing a major important part in our lives.

Perhaps we may come to a conclusion that advertisement shall be governed by laws and regulations in safety, health and the environment.
