Always research and analyze what you read.
Today, I was the target of a sponsored ad on Facebook.
Facebook algorithms determined that my demographic, Facebook likes and posts matched that of a Shell Oil sponsored post that appears to “promote bright energy in Africa”.
This is how the media tricks you. This is how enormous, money hungry corporations trick you into believing their practices are positive and wholesome.
They target you, the consumer, and play off of your values while using intentional advertising (such as featuring celebrities) coupled with catchy music to persuade you to purchase their products.
Because their products “match” your morals.
And it isn’t just Shell that’s doing this. Have you examined your food lately?
