We are saturated with messages propagated by mass media. Through this, it has the ability to be especially harmful when comparing gender, race and/or class on the grounds that it constructs negative perceptions of those involved. Furthermore, reinforcing them on a daily basis albeit through cinema or advertising. It offers the public a way to frame what subcultures do and proves to be notoriously problematic because they often lack the state of being precise. Media is still vital because it can be used to socialize and on the other hand to make decisions and formulates opinions: it builds up the notoriety of vices.
For instance, looking at Facebook and twitter, or Gmail and Yahoo. In order to understand any piece of technology it is better to look at the whole thing as a whole.

How the “Happy Socks” brand is trying to evoke desire to consumers through their philosophy, campaigns, and advertisements Brand attachment has been linked with the experience of positive emotions, and positive social contact. In fact, feelings of comfort, happiness, and security reflect the object of attachment (Park et al., 2010; Thomson et al., 2005), while consumers tend to attach to a brand, as a result of the increased feeling of defining, and in the vast majority of cases, maintaining their sense of self, in the terms that they are becoming a part of an appreciated “brand community” and at the same time, they are fulfilling the need to belong (Kim, Lee, & Ulgado, 2005; Schifferstein, & Zwartkruis-Pelgrim, 2008). Desire, conflict and
Apple – One of the main ethical dilemmas faced by Apple is about safeguarding the privacy of their customers or complying with the government to assist them with investigations which may be for the betterment of the whole country. Apple has introduced operating systems with default full-disk encryptions since iOS 8, to protect its user’s privacy and security. However, the FBI believes that encryption is merely a marketing strategy that will attract criminals at the cost of country’s safety. Since the introduction of full-disk encryption, the user created a passcode and Apple could access any information in the phone without the passcode. They believed that they did not want the power to access content so that law enforcement could figure out a way to do it themselves instead of asking Apple to invade their customer’s privacy.
Evaluate Apple’s use of social media in this instance according to the theory. Social media is now a widespread part of how people and organisations communicate and participate online. (Doorley&Garcia, 2015) Because of the scale of social media today, organisations no matter the sector, must address social media as part of the reputation management matrix. (Doorley&Garcia, 2015) It's a well-known fact that Apple’s marketing makes use of the minimalist approach, with sleek and simple television commercials and no official Facebook or Twitter page. So how does Apple know they have a crisis on their hands if they weren’t mentioned in these tweets?

The main objectives of culture jamming often incorporates consciousness raising, the raising awareness of social and political issues, as well as using the media to criticise the media and dominate culture (O’Shaughnessy and Stadler, 2012, 214). Culture jamming, for a very long time, has been the main means of strategy to oppose and slow down what is perceived as a dehumanizing, and thus problematic, global trend. This master plan, which involves exposing what is “behind the brand” (frequently labour exploitation), is based on re-representing logos of companies that conjure the brand with new and conflicting representations (Brown, 1). Culture jamming aims to promote change by making consumers aware of the contradictions of corporations’ policies and practises as well as making them aware of their own consumer choices (Micheletti, Stolle, Follesdal, 2006, 136). It does so in a humorous way with the intention of provoking a positive reaction rather than a negative one.
However, identity may change and undergo transformations over time. There are some reasons for this, but the most significant reason is the clash between globalism and nationalism. They are the integral part of the life, so their impacts are inevitable. These impacts are both favourable and unfavourable.
