Hauling- Marissa Johnston

Posted: January 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

Previous to fridays lecture I was unaware of the hauling phenomenon. It interests me that people (mostly tween/teen girls) , would spend their time making videos just to show off their purchases from that day. I see both negative and positive aspects of this. Negative, being that people have become so technologically dependent that both the person posting the haul, and viewers are spending countless hours on something so mindless as hauling- some of the videos being half an hour long, and if you watch multiple videos it could be very time consuming. On the other hand, it can be seen as helpful reviews from real people to the public as well as is free advertising for the stores and products. Personally, I have no interest in following this trend, but I do see how it could benefit others.
