Are we forced to make a choice while visiting different websites and watching youtube videos?Open any webpage and there is a possibility of performing some actions that you do not intend to. Accidentally you may click on some options that will make your mailbox full in no time. In most of the websites of news media a message or pop up flashes on top of the screen that asks for your approval for subscribing to their feeds and surprisingly the allow or yes option is automatically highlighted as if they are sure about your choice of accepting them. Take the case of Youtube videos, in many videos you have to watch certain advertisements for a particular period before the original video starts.
Now, what you will see and not see is absolutely your own choice and nobody can dictate you about this choice, but aren't these advertisements before playing Youtube videos or pop up messages asking for our approval to subscribe forced upon us? I fail to understand why somebody has to force us to make a choice. It may be generating revenues for the company by showing these advertisements or pop ups, but I feel at times these can become a cause of anger. In the long run this may turn out to be worrisome and we may see some more stringent guidelines from the advertisement council to stop this unnecessary commanding attitude. Members do you agree?
