  • Yes of course

    It makes you want things that yo don't need In daily life people don't need an Iphone to make calls or send messages or to chat with their friends but the way such commodities are advertised makes it look like it is one of the most essential part of life . Advertisements bring your attention to things which were previously unknown to you and since you don't know anything about it and you depend on the facts given by the advertisement which may not be true and even misleading.

  • Yes it would.

    Media influences society indirectly, or rather, it strongly suggest the viewer to do something. This something can vary from telling one to wear their seatbelt and have a designated driver to suggesting that you smoke a pack of cigarettes a day for your health. The thing is, not all advertisements are positive. In some places with justice systems that one could consider sub par, people can throw up false ideas everywhere.

    Cancer is positive. Meth is supportive of a healthy lifestyle. Stabbing yourself in the stomach will make you become less fat. All of these things are not the truth in the slightest, but with the right audience and the right people behind the advertisement this could become a reality. All you need is people gullible enough to believe everything they see on TV, and in this day and age that’s a non-issue. You might also need your justice and censorship systems to be slightly underfunded and not interested in dealing with your problem. Or, you could pay them off.

    One isn’t going to be able to convince the majority of the North AMerican public with these kind of lies, but what if you make them slightly smaller and use your most effective tool as leverage?

    By having fame by your side and making your famous people using certain items, you can make it so that the populace would surely like to have the same things, even if they’re useless. For example, what if one of your nation’s idols’ had a supercar and flaunted it? Now, chances are, a lot of impressionable kids would now want a supercar themselves, even though you could make a sleeper with an awesome engine for cheaper, a bit of time and you’d also probably not get your car stolen or broken into since who in their right mind would steal a car from the late 1990’s?

  • I am just summing up this topic by all the previously posted wonderful points.

    • Few people misuse advertising for promoting products & try to sell them by making false claims about the product ... BUT the consumer purchases the product because he has the need and he is "made" to think (by the advertisements) that the product will satisfy the need. This is wrong.
    • Advertisements give us the urge to buy things we do not need in large numbers. They create awareness of their products and present it to us in a tempting manner.
    • Advertisements create an artificial reality in a person’s mind by appealing to their human desire. They exploit minds to influence consumerism, creating a "need" and a “want”.
    • Advertising creates awareness with the goal to impact behavior. In many cases this drives demand for a product

  • Advertisement creates manipulate wants

    First of all be very clear that advertising or marketing CAN NOT create needs, they can - "manipulate wants" , but they can not create needs

    so advertising does not create needs , what advertising do is - "manipulate wants" and since you have asked "why" the answer is very simple - it is the job of advertising to promote products (& their benefits) and persuade potential consumers to buy it.

    .... Well , it is true that becasue of competitive pressures advertisers cross the line of ethics quite frequently now a days, ... Few people misuse advertising for promoting products & try to sell them by making false claims about the product ... BUT the consumer purchases the product because he has the need and he is "made" to think (by the advertisements) that the product will satisfy the need ... This is wrong but this is not creating needs

    advertising and advertisers make false claims about the products and services that that are selling ... Because .... In a country like India the judicial system is not so fast and companies know that by the time somebody will react the job will be completed ... So we see unnecessary and false advertising and by the time some consumer organization reacts to it ... The company already gets popularity and when court puts an "stay" the company accept it (very happily) because the job is done by that advertisement...

  • Are we progressing or what?

    I thing advertising is very important. How will we get to know what are the various products we can choose from to make our lives more comfortable and juat like we need and want it. Advertising does not create artificial needs. However it may take advantage of human nature of greed. Thats it. Thats what i think do you

  • Artificial needs arose in those people who are rich enough to buy it.

    The value of rupees in India are falling in high rate. It is now impossible for the middle class people to purchase whatever they see on television, newspaper or by other means. For people like me advertising instead of creating artificial needs, it gives an inspiration to do our work sincerely and achieve our ambition so that we can enjoy all the extra luxury.

  • Needs are created by consumer

    This is the rule of marketing , first the demand is created among consumer , then the producer analyzes it , the product is then created and sold back to the customer , the need or demand is always created within the customer , and talking about advertisements , if the producer will not advertise it then the sales will get zero and if such things starts then the whole world economy will get disturbed terribly . One cannot blame the advertisements for investing money in a product . It's the customers choice .

  • Advertising does not create artificial needs, although it does exploit consumers' needs.

    Creates? No. Exploits? Yep. People will always have that desire for more. It's like we get bored and can't just be satisfied with what we have. The desire or need for something else is already there, advertisers simply understand that and expose their audience to products that will fill that need.

  • Its new and hot

    People only want things because they are "new" take apple for example. Does anyone really talk about new versions and software updates? They just talk about their new item that they flash around. Little do they see the technology that is advancing. We will always have that desire to be modern in technology.

  • It's the WANT not the need. Advertising exploits the WANT. WE use (and create) a need to justify that want.

    Hunger is a need. No advertising can fill it and it can easily be filled without any advertising, but we can all think of something we WANT to eat and, if given the opportunity, we can then use our hunger to justify satisfying that want. Advertising may present quantifiable details about the (junk)food/snack that we already want and paint it in a positive light (it's high fiber, gluten and fat free, and reduced sugar and ...), and that message will strengthen a sense of permission as well.
    Therefore the WANT is satisfied in the name of the need and with the permission of "better judgement"...
