What are advertisings' effects on society?

Does it affect behavior or trends?


Answer by  mannersandsuch (1796)

Advertising effects the way that we think about products, our culture expectations, the value of money and even ourselves. Commercials that go on and on about how a product is such a great deal make people believe that a cartoon product should be worth even more then it is advertised for, therefore allowing companies to sell products at hight prices.

Yes i think it does. Look at the weight loss commercials. A person that is overweight will consider using the product. Coming to find out that it really doesn't work. All advertising affects one person or another in a huge way.

Advertising can bring out a more agressive nature in people by trying to become a number one company with the best product. As far as trends go, advertising is how trends exist. An item is popularized by more exposure.


Answer by  tamkees (3203)

Advertising has a powerful effect on society and definitely affects both behavior and trends. For instance, most people didn't think about deodorant until advertisers successfully convinced them to that this natural body odor was offensive and embarrassing. And research has proven that all things being equal, people will buy the product whose ad has a positive association for them.
