Paragraph 1 : Advertisements are always misleading.

Sum up and state the final opinion.
Advertisement is something that accentuates and helps in the hype of the product which is advertised. A person’s allure is highly influenced by these factors as the concept of beauty is defined by these ads. Consciously or subconsciously, these leave a perennial impression on viewers’ minds, urging them to buy these products.. The individual always tries to be the person in the advert and loses the identity of their own. In the forthcoming paragraphs I shall explain my point of view and give supporting reasons.
To begin with, different types of advertisements are there, and all of them are intended at producing ratings for the product. Most of the adverts are false and misleading, and this makes the people lose their uniqueness and develop some other temperament.They lose their esse and become a copy-paste of the person shown on the ad. Several regretful events have taken place as a result of immoral publicity.
There exists a lot of positive potential in advertising, but the fact is that people are taking it in a manner that is incompatible. Everything has pros and cons, but the way we perceive it is totally dependent on us. The people who make ads have only one thing in mind, and that is the marketing of the product and the profit. They always focus on the promotion of their commodities for a desirable outcome and the people blindly follow their lead and they are not bothered about their uniqueness and charm.
Even though advertisements perform a vital role in our progress, losing individuality and trying to be someone else is a serious issue.
In conclusion, advertisements do play an integral role in defining the current trends in the modern day market .In my opinion though, the way that the common folk perceive such advertisements may differ from person to person and similarly the influence. Therefore, it is highly important that these advertisements are used both effectively and logically to maximise the customer choices and not as a ploy to deceive the customer by false propaganda.
