One of the most interesting people I follow on Tumblr is AdamJK. He’s always sharing stuff he has made and it is always entertaining.

Just this afternoon, I saw this on his blog about a trip that some of the people from his office had made to Facebook to talk about ads. I find all of the points on this interesting in their own ways but recently, I’ve really been thinking a lot about how emotional reward in particular is used in modern advertising.

I’m still a little sketchy on the details of how this works ethically, but the use of a cause/effect mentality mixed with emotion in ad campaigns is nonetheless very interesting.

Think I might write about it more soon.
