    We are constantly being bombarded by advertisements everywhere!We see ads on Billboards, Flyers, Posters, Brochures, Facebook, Buses, Cars, Bus Stops and even on Sidewalks!! But have we ever thought about what the world would be like if we never had any advertisments? Tell me what you think......

    All products/goods or services through word of mouth is effective, but old school mentality. Isn't about to happen. wink

    East Germany before the fall of the
    Wall. When I was there it was like going back in time a hundred years before. A bit of a glimpse is the movie "Good Bye, Lenin! 2004".

    You might think the ads would be replaced with thoughtful, high-quality reading and intelligent programming.  That may be..but the economy would sink like a stone.  So much of our standard of living relies on products being bought and sold every single day.

    Many of them are considered necessities.  We need choices and competition to keep the cost of these things reasonable.  The only really effective way to accomplish that is to make the choices known to the public, via advertising.

    The trouble is..too much competiton, and the subsequent advertising results in a case of information overload, and becomes a turn-off for many people.

    One of the choices is ignoring 90% of it. smile
