Spam is everything!
As recently as a couple of days ago, a discussion about spam broke out in the comments on Habra. Some opined that spam was Penis enlargement pills and Be with Vi’ag’ra" others opined that "this is the mail we didn’t ask for, " others opined, "Spam is un-argeted mailings." Since the post suggested mailing lists, people’s opinions swirled mostly around the notion of spam in email.
Let’s try to go beyond e-mail and think about what is spam and does it have other manifestations in our lives?
Some believe that spam is all unsolicited information, including conversations with strangers, a randomly heard radio transmission in a nearby car, and even an entry on a receipt, not to mention outdoor, print, TV, radio, and other advertisements.
Some people associate spam solely with means of electronic communication. Although more and more people see the silhouettes of advertising structures as a kind of spam (physical spam), it causes subconscious rejection and resistance. Even in our country, society protests against chaotically placed urban advertising structures.
Of course, the advertising structures, installed without regard to the general appearance of the city, spoil it. Somewhere in ZhJ there were pictures of the old Moscow, without tents, vendors, advertising, etc. It’s nice to look at! It’s not like that now, but even so, the News Outdoor billboards at bus stops, for example, look nice.
In my opinion, this is more pollution than spam. Spam is flyers in the mailbox (direct marketing), house calls, walls (guerrilla marketing), e-mail, im-messages, comments on websites, posts on forums (elements of Internet marketing). A characteristic of spam is probably that it somehow touches your personal space. Your email, your messenger, your website. Secondly, spam causes me losses: I have to spend time shoveling leaflets out of my mailbox, talking on the phone, looking through messages, especially when among the 1000 emails that arrived since yesterday evening, there are 1-2 letters that I need. In addition, Internet advertising eats up traffic (if it is paid).
Outdoor advertising is not spam in this case. Neither on TV, nor on the radio, nor in the media. Because the principle applies – "If you don’t want to, don’t look (read, listen)". I do not notice outdoor advertising, not the medium itself, but the message. If the message is interesting, then I write down all the contact information at once. Otherwise, the message is lost. By the way, this is how I often find out information about mass and not only events. Now the question is, if not from an outside source, then from where?
Interesting to know what you mean by spam? I’d like to see not a wikipedia quote, but a subjective opinion based solely on personal experience.
