While advertising can be seen as necessary for economic growth, it is without social costs. Unsolicited commercial email and other forms of spam have become so prevalent as to have become a major nuisance of users of these services, as well being a financial burden on the Internet providers. Advertising is increasingly invading public spaces, such as schools, which some critics argue is a form of child exploitation. One scholar has argued that advertising is toxic by product of industrial society which makes dream and escape the reality.
The impact of publicity is greater on the poor than on the average working class family. The first are in need of almost every kind of modern comfort, consumption goods, travels and to mention a few of their unsatisfied necessities. The latter, on the other hand do not at all escape the negative effects of publicity. They are victims, too. They are slaves of fashion, new products and consumer goods and cannot live without them.
It is a common truth today that publicity has a harmful effect on the individual. The aggressivity from advertisement grows threatening in affluent societies. Whenever you are or wherever you go and practically at any moment of the day or night, advertisement is there waiting for you.
