Many consumers ignore commercial advertisements. In response, advertising companies have started using a new tactic, called “buzzing.” The advertisers hire people—buzzers—who personally promote (buzz) products to people they know or meet. The key part is that the buzzers do not reveal that they are being paid to promote anything. They behave as though they were just spontaneously praising a product during normal conversation. Buzzing has generated a lot of controversy, and many critics would like to see it banned.

First, the critics complain that consumers should know whether a person praising a product is being paid to praise the product. Knowing this makes a big difference: we expect the truth from people who we believe do not have any motive for misleading us. But with buzzing what you hear is just paid advertising, which may well give a person incorrect information about the buzzed product.

Second, since buzzers pretend they are just private individuals, consumers listen to their endorsements less critically than they should. With advertisements in print or on TV, the consumer is on guard for questionable claims or empty descriptions such as “new and improved.” But when consumers do not know they are being lobbied, they may accept claims they would otherwise be suspicious of. This may suit the manufacturers, but it could really harm consumers.

And worst of all is the harmful effect that buzzing is likely to have on social relationships. Once we become aware that people we meet socially may be buzzers with a hidden agenda, we will become less trustful of people in general. So buzzing will result in the spread of mistrust and the expectation of dishonesty.

Recently, there has been a controversy on companies using buzzing to market their products. More specifically, in regard to the passage, the writer put forth about how people criticize the banning of the ads. The lecturer, however, is quick to point out that there are some serious flaws made by the writer. In fact, he believes and addresses in detail each trouble made in the reading text.

First and foremost, the author of the reading states that consumers should be aware if people are being paid to market the product. Besides, if paid publicizing is the only thing heard, eventually it will provide false information. The lecturer, however, stands in firm opposition to this claim. He states that buzzing is a paramount ad that reveals the truth from the marketing promoters.

Secondly, the writer states that when buzzers disguise themselves as private people they will definitely cause harm to the consumers. Again, the speaker addresses the point when he points out that people always get clarification about the product especially on goods surveys, prices, and the extent to which the product has been in the market. So if people are not satisfied, they won’t purchase the product.

Finally, the author brings his argument to a close by suggesting that buzzing will automatically bring about dishonesty and as a result, it will interpersonal relationships among people. Not surprising, the professor rebutted this claim by positing that if the products aren’t good, obviously the company will not employ a marketer. Moreover, people who try buzzers have a pleasant experience and also they keep being people of integrity by trusting people therefore, there is no harm in social relationships.
