The topic that my group and myself covered was over popular icons and their influence in our society. Celebrities I found hold tremendous power and influence as to how people admire them. Our society is celebrity focused and holds them on a pedestal as if they are idols. I learned that mainly celebrity icons serve as tools of worship for society. Our group looked at the topics of influence of celebrities on the consumer culture.
I learned that celebrities bring light to brands and products. Majority of individuals base their decisions on buying products if someone famous is using it, since they strive to be like them. An example would be Beyoncé having a mega deal with Pepsi. She

When the word ‘celebrity’ is used, what comes to mind? Most likely, it is people who are singers, movie stars, or talk show hosts. The word includes a much broader group of people, though. Despite the fact that people do not realize it, politicians, activists, and sports stars are celebrities too. All of these people have an impact on society; whether it is through their activism, their impact in sports, or their contribution to the entertainment industry.

For another example, let’s say that someone has idolized a celebrity ever since they were really young. However, now news stories come out with pictures showing that star person smoking. This may influence that celebrity’s fans to smoke as well.
In television and movies, sexual behaviors are often portrayed. It seems as though throughout the years, it becomes more and more okay to mention the behaviors that were once considered taboo by most people. When people see these behaviors on their favorite programs, they become more justified and seem more normal

Reality television tries to disguise what is really going on in the television shows. The actors and producers shine a false spotlight on “reality”. “Reality television is defined as a ‘TV show observing real-life situation: television programs often deliberately manufactured situations, and that monitor their emotions and behavior’” (Paredes 26). Reality television is a bad influence on our society today due to the popularity, decision making, and misconduct of the individuals shown. People in today’s time can be compared to the time period when The Lady or the Tiger by Frank R. Stockton was set. Today’s world lets reality television and live shows influence their decisions by trying to

Our society is slowly but drastically, devolving. We let the media take total control over every aspect of us, how we dress, who we talk to, what we eat, even how we think. Everyone thinks they are their own person but no one ever stops to think of why they do what they do. The media has never had as much control as they do now. As we go on reading our newspapers and our magazines, no one stops to think of what we're reading, how many things don't add up or make sense. We just accept it to be the truth. We have lost all the intelligence we once had striven for, now we simple look up to television to educate our children. Have you seen what it's brought us? Homicides, suicides

Influence of Apple
There is an incredibly small amount of companies that can claim part in completely changing a consumer market. Even less can claim part in changing society. On the prestigious list of companies who can make legitimate arguments for both of these groups, one stands out among the rest. Apple Inc. has completely revolutionized society as well as their own market. Apple changed the entire market of personal computers, innovating beyond what people even dreamed of, and Steve Jobs, redefining the definition of a CEO.

All main character components to the story are represented with actors, not just images of a painting or sculpted bust. This allows the viewer to see them as people that truly existed on a relatable level, and further involves them in the stories. Social documentaries, while being non-fiction, can present historical information in a way that may influence viewers’ opinions. Although basically truthful information, it may only present one side of the story, making some aspect or opinion more favorable. Viewers can become emotionally involved

According to Mujtaba (2011), mass media has both positive and negative impacts on today’s society and people should be able to understand them.

It is also stated in the article on how mass media affects people’s lifestyle, young adults, and public opinion. This essay is a response to the article mentioned above.

Today in society, influential people can alter how people live their everyday lives in either a pleasant or an immoral manner. Athletes, such as famous Olympic figure skater, Kristi Yamaguchi, created a lasting impact on people everywhere. The way that athletes cope with their challenges and reach their goals is an important factor in the works of influencing a nation. An athlete’s extraordinary capabilities are another component of influencing a population. Another style that is used by influential people is having the quality of integrity to make a moral influence for others.

Because of some lots thrown a long time ago, Hades’ reputation and attitude towards him changed his life. His reputation as Lord of the Dead describes his personality. Therefore, most of Greek society despises him. The Underworld, unappealing, despicable, and hazardous, describes Hades as a person for most Greeks. The few myths that involve Hades portray him as a bad god, who only thinks of evil. Most of Greek society doesn’t want Hades to direct his attention on them. In their belief, this would result in

The Influence of Society on Gender
The term gender can be defined as the characteristics by which people determine if their classification is to be male or female. Gender role expectations are things that a society deems normal and acceptable behavior, attitudes, and desires for a person. The question as to weather or not society influences the gender of a person or if it is an innate tendency. This age old nature versus nurture question has been answered by science many times for many years. I came across an article in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine published in 1997.

The Media’s Negative Influence on Society
There is a lot of controversy about how the media affects people, but in my opinion I think the influence we get is more negative than positive. The media is one of the things that impact people the most because in today’s society it is impossible to ignore. It influences the ways in which we dress, speak, act and think. Media is fed to us through movies, television, radio, social media, music, and magazines. I believe mass media is pressuring the way woman and girls want to look, twists reality, and is sexist towards woman without people even realizing.

The event in Littleton, Colorado, 5 years ago was a shocking wake up call to our society. Because of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold’s fanaticism with artists such as Marilyn Manson, music was labeled as the culprit for negatively influencing the youth of America. Music is a tool of expression that an artist uses to vent their frustrations and to reveal their emotions. However, these artists do not see the moral boundary that they have crossed with their emotionally disturbing lyrics and dark melodies. To grab the attention of teenagers, musicians often produce music videos with a vivid portrayal of the song’s message. The heavy influence it has on

In today's society, advertising has a profound impact on how people understand life, the world and themselves, especially in regard to their values and their ways of choosing and behaving, an argument the Church stands behind. Advertising can also have a corrupting influence upon culture and cultural values, playing an important role in moral norms, the common good, and human development.

With each social reformation, cultural forms and institutions also change as well as their meanings. For Example, the development of recording and electronic communication within United States capitalism spurred the unique coming together of disparate music traditions in twentieth century United States society.# The development of these technologies allowed music to reach beyond regional boundaries, which led to the clashing of vastly different cultures of all parts of the United States.

The power structures of Medieval Christianity allowed the church to use religion as a tool and as an excuse to systematically oppress a certain segment of society, in order to establish their control. This reflects the theories of both Marx and Freud, and is as relevant in the Middle Ages, as it was during the Industrial Revolution. For the purpose of this essay, a Medieval time frame between the years of 1000 – 1400 A.D has been established. This is set to focus on the influence of religion during a specific era, rather than attempt to broaden the topic. Medieval Christianity used religion to ensure that the feudal structure of society stood in place, and that no one would step outside of

The influence of media on society in the 21st century is undeniable. Of all the types of media, music and books stand out as two of the main strands that influences people the most. They are both invaluable resources of knowledge and entertainment that can be accessed by all age groups. However, the most important aspect of music and books that has made them so prominent to the 21st century audience is that it offers a wide range of genres and styles. Consequently, Music and books have become the principal method of entertainment in the lives of many, as it bestows upon people the opportunity to free themselves from reality, and exist in their own fantasy worlds.

In modern society, the public uses multiple types of media each day. Two main types of media for entertainment are video games and movies. Although they both started for different purposes, they now leave people choosing between one or the other (Franich, 2011). Due to the specific stereotyping of movie characters, movies are more influential than video games. People can relate better to the characters, and thus change their perceptions and beliefs after viewing movies.

When constantly exposed to violent images through media and technology our adolescents become desensitized to aggressive behavior. “In other words, youth come to believe that aggression is normal, appropriate, and likely to succeed” (Anderson).

To make matters worse, even our adults are being diseased with iniquitous thoughts!
