Advertising is not only about selling products
Advertising is no longer solely about selling products; it is about the skill of linking human’s desires with merchandise. As technology advances dramatically in recent years, the influence of advertisement has been expanding at a faster pace than ever. Advertisement is a system of brainwashing. It is constantly telling people that if they buy their products or use their services, all problems will be solved. Their products can fulfill their needs. Advertising simply creating needs that was non-existent and turns luxuries into necessities. Therefore, technology, which is usually benefits to society, can also facilitate the most diabolical evil.
