🚑WHO to Identify Online Shopping as Addictive
I have read an article tonight that mentions that online shopping will grow annually by approximately 10 per cent in the next two years and the ease of online shopping will cause some consumers financial stress as companies use artificial intelligence to target consumers and coerce them to spend discretionary income that they do not have.
The article mentions that by 2023 the World Health Organization will identify online shopping as an addictive disorder. I think this is starting to happen especially through the pandemic where people were locked in their houses with not a lot to do other than go shopping.
Very interesting indeed. I welcome your thoughts.
During the pandemic and being locked up at home I was addicted to online shopping. Most of the time I look for items on online shopping sites and try to buy them. I think the things I buy are not really important I need. Indeed, I think that during this pandemic online shopping has become a habit and makes everyone addicted, especially in my country.
Online shopping is in uptrend trend for the past few years. There many reasons people like online shopping.
Advancement of internet which provide high speed internet services and advanced hand phones make on line shopping very addictive and easy. We can check the products from house or office so it can save a lot of time from travelling ,parking fees and save fuel.. The search engines can compare the prices very fast. Definitely online business will grow very fast and many traditional style shops need to close down or change the method of doing business.
I think the way online ahopping app was designed is similar to those of social media. The social media has lured people to spend their time everuday, and they get addicted to it. Online shopping app works in the same way, but instead of time they lured people to spend their money and get addicted to it.
Hi Ramachandran, thanks for explaining to me. You really know about online shopping. Nice to meet you.
That’s right, online shopping made me addicted. The need for spending is increasing especially during the current pandemic. How about you?
I never thought that this can happen, but with the current trend of events, it’s very possible. I guess it will happen.
I agree, Jackson, it will happen given the current situation with the development of online shopping
