Meaning

Advertising is needed to inform, direct and educate, but in its present form, it is an invasive expression of commerce.

Outdoor advertising has become unavoidable. Traditional billboards have cleared the way for more persuasive methods such as wrapped vehicles, sides of buildings, electronic signs, kiosks, taxis, posters, sides of buses, and more.

Throughout the time , it has become implicitly understood by the public that advertising has the right to own, occupy and control every inch of available space.

Advertising is also invasive because it manipulates consumers by creating unnecessary needs, it puts ideas, thoughts, and wants into the heads of consumers.

Advertisers have now full control about the choices we make, advertising become invasive when they start manipulating you  on base of your fears or desires, when they make you feel like you’re not good enough as you are, that you have to get a product in order to be happy, when it invades your privacy via spam, junk mail, bill boards among others, when it it gives you a false idea of reality.

Also advertising is having a strong effect on children and adolescents. I found this grpahs that are impressive. 


 
Advertising is necessary. It gives information to the consumers. Also it stimulates the economy,

The countries in which the media advertising investment rate is highest are those in which the propensity for But consumption is also highest. But now it has become a little invasive. And its related to:

Unavoidable

Materialism

Manipulation

Unnecessary needs
