Social media has been known to make an impact through advertisers of major organizations. A  social issue that made a disturbing impact was the Timeline for an Anti-Drug campaign. The purpose of the campaign was to make Facebook users aware of the consequences of using drugs. Due to its disturbing images, the website quickly put a stop to the guerilla campaign because it was make users feel uncomfortable…. I feel that anyone whom was uncomfortable either has done drugs, or know someone who does them. It was a harsh reality consumers needed to see because it affects the lives of not just the user, but their friends and family around them.

Would this kind of advertising/ social media strategy make you feel uncomfortable?
