I totally agree that advertisements tell us about new products and those products might improve our life by the improved speed and cost-efficiency.
Some people tend to believe advertising force us to buy goods that we don’t need. Some products like mobile phones always force us to buy them using colorful and attractive advertisements. So people buy expensive mobile devices with so many high-end functions, but they might never use those functions in their day-to-day life. Because of that, Some people say advertising encourages us to buy things that we really do not need.
On the other hand, Some people believe that advertisements improve our lives by introducing good products. Nowadays with technological advancements every day we see new improved versions of electrical items. For example, refrigerators are now so energy efficient.
