The Strong Influence of Media to our Decision Making

Media, in general, strongly affects how we make decision. Every time we watch television shows and news, browse our social media accounts, or listen to the radio, there will always be advertisements about a certain product or service, and almost all the time, what we hear and see especially from the internet, will decide what product or service company to choose. Media also holds power when it comes to portraying an individual’s character. Say, for example, if a politician do something wrong, the media can turn the story around by making it look like the politician is the victim not the other way around. In addition to that, they will find an angle that will make the politician less bad for what happened.

There are various ways media was able to influence our decision making. The succeeding paragraphs are based on experience on how I depend what I am gonna buy based on what I heard or watched from the internet.

Back in the days when the media and internet was not that powerful,  I always ask the opinion of my friends and family members before I buy something. I want the second opinion from others for me to not blame myself in case it is disappointing and not worth it. One time, while I was cleaning our house, I noticed that the overall interior is not that pleasing anymore. Some part of the ceiling are broken and the paint is starting to get broken. Then I remember that it was already more than ten years since the interior painting changed. I immediately remember the advertisement of a painting company named calgary painting companies. There are a  lots of reviews with the said company. The reviews says that the company provide exemplary service yet affordable prices. You will never go wrong with hiring them.

I remember, it was ten years ago when our ceilings and walls need to get repainted, I just asked mu husband and my brother to paint. But since the media influence me to avail such service, then I that is what I do. It is a good thing that the company is very professional and offer quality service.
