There is no doubt that now a days televisions and movies are widespread everywhere. Statistics show that children watch television more than studying. These statistics demonstrate that every person spends 40 percent of his time, watching television or movies. From my perspective television has profoundly affected people’s behavior and even their thoughts,specially young adults, both positively and negatively.
To begin with, TV in conjunction to it’s advertisements and commercials, has , unfortunately, created erroneous desire and need for useless things we really don’t need. For example, recently there are huge amount of advertisements, trying to entice people to buy their products, such as certain drugs ,to loos weight; however, all of these advertisements are mendacious and buying these drugs is not only waste of money, but also danger to our health.
how do movies or televisions influence people’s behavior?
Alternatively, some TV programs and movies, induce harmful thoughts and manners to young adults. Some young boys try to follow characters of movies, in order to show their vagor or in order to attract girls. For example, they may commit to crimes that they have seen in movies. Additionally, some movies , indirectly tempt young adults to smoke or to abuse drugs.
Despite those negative effects of TV, it still has several benevolent and positive features. As an illustration, there are a number of educational programs on TV , teaching how to cook or how to speak in other languages; moreover, it has quite interesting scientifical disscusions and films. Surely, most of us watch news on TV, which helps us to be aware of whatever is going on around the world.
All in all, according to advantages and disadvantages of TV that were mentioned before, in my estimation, TV is a prevalent and amusing entertainer; however , all of us must be aware of it’s harmful features.
